A man police say was shot during a struggle over a gun on Washington Street at the Roslindale/Forest Hills line was ordered held without bail at least until a dangerousness hearing - at which he could be ordered held even longer - on July 14, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Theodore Gamble-Williams, 36 of Boston, was arraigned today in West Roxbury Municipal Court on charges that included three counts of assault and battery on a police officer and single counts of unlawful possession of a firearm as a second offense, carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, unlawful possession of ammunition, possession of a Class B substance with intent to distribute as a subsequent offense and resisting arrest, the DA's office reports. He was also charged as being a Level 3 armed career criminal and a habitual offender, which could mean longer sentences if he's convicted on the other charges.

In a statement, DA Rachael Rolins said her office will conduct an investigation into how a police officer came to shoot Gamble-Williams - standard procedure for any incident in which an officer shoots somebody.

Innocent, etc.
