Boston Police report arresting two Roslindale men on gun charges Saturday night after finding one with a loaded gun in his hoodie and the other sitting in a car with a loaded gun under his seat - and finding a third gun in front of the car.
Police say gang-unit officers got a tip that some guys hanging out at Washington-Beech might have guns on them. Around 11 p.m., they turned onto Beechland Circle and got out of their cruisers:
They observed suspect, Jayvon Williams, 18, of Roslindale, standing near the driver’s side of a parked motor vehicle. Due to the nature of the call, officers conducted a pat frisk and immediately felt the presence of a firearm in Williams hooded sweatshirt. The loaded firearm was a black revolver with a wooden handle containing 5 rounds.
Officers believed the passenger in the motor vehicle, later identified as James Hemingway, 29, of Roslindale, may have been concealing a weapon, so they safely removed him from the motor vehicle and observed a firearm under the passenger seat. The second firearm was a black semi-automatic Ruger LCP .380 containing 5 rounds in the magazine.
After further investigation, officers recovered a third firearm that was located on the ground in front of the driver’s side tire of the motor vehicle. The third firearm was a black semi-automatic Ruger LC9 containing 1 round in the chamber and 7 rounds in the magazine.
Both were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say.
