Boston Police report arresting a Roxbury man and his father for a double shooting on Mission Hill on Dec. 20 - and say the guy is a suspect in three more shootings in the area.
Police say Daiquan Rice, 23, of Roxbury and his father, Roderick Clay, 43, of Dorchester, fired on two men sitting in a car at Parker and Gurney streets around 5 p.m. Both victims were taken to local hospitals with non-fatal injuries.
The pair were picked up by detectives and gang-unit officers yesterday afternoon; both were charged with armed assault to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, police say. Dad faces higher potential penalties because he has three prior gun and drug convictions. Police add:
During the arrest of Rice, officers recovered a loaded Browning CZ-83 .380 caliber firearm that Rice discarded as he attempted to flee from officers in the area of 3091 Washington Street, Roxbury. ... Prior to transport, officers also recovered a medium bag of what appeared to be crack cocaine and a large quantity of money on Rice’s person; therefore, Rice is further charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B Drugs.
Police say that after picking them up, detectives figured out that Rice also fit the description of the shooter in two other incidents: A double shooting at 30 Annunciation Rd around 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 24 and a single shooting at 260 Ruggles St. near Annunciation Road around 5:40 p.m. on Dec. 7.
All three victims suffered non-fatal injuries, police say.
