Boston police arrested two men last Thursday for allegedly trying to gun down two other men on Halleck Street in Mission Hill.
Dominick Whitlow Douglas, 28, and Tevin Abercrombie, 25, arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way and possession of a firearm with an altered or defaced serial number.
The incident occurred around 6 p.m. last Thursday when police received reports of shots fired in the area of Halleck Street.
Officers spoke to witnesses on Halleck Street who said the gunshots had come from the area of Station Street, which intersects Halleck.
Witnesses also told police that two suspects, later identified as Douglas and Abercrombie, allegedly exited a dark sedan and began shooting at two unknown male victims who were walking on Halleck Street before returning to their vehicle and fleeing the area. Officers searched the area and located ballistic evidence on Station Street, but were unable to locate the suspects or any victims.
Officers continued to canvas the area when they saw a black sedan exit a parking lot on Gurney Street in Mission–two blocks from where the ballistic evidence was found by police. The car matched the description of the vehicle the suspects were allegedly operating before fleeing the area.
Officers activated their emergency equipment and initiated a traffic stop in the area of Smith Street and Parker Street.
Officers removed Douglas and Abercrombie from the vehicle and subsequently located a firearm under the passenger’s seat.
