Police say man fires gun on Talbot Avenue, then retreats to his apartment there, where he is arrested

Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man after he allegedly shot at somebody on Talbot Avenue early Tuesday morning. Police say he missed, but hit a house instead.

Police say officers responding to a report of gunfire in the area of 245 Talbot Ave. found a nearby residence with "ballistic damage" - and at least one witness who reported spotting the gunman retreating into the apartment building at 245 Talbot, where they found and arrested Trevis Catron, 47.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and, on entering Catron's apartment, found a Taurus 40-caliber gun loaded with ten rounds, along with another 63 bullets for the gun just sitting there, plus an additional 33 loose bullets for another type of gun.

Catron was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say.

Innocent, etc.
