Boston Police report arresting Daniel Logan, 50, after he allegedly pulled a gun on a fellow dog owner and fired one shot in his direction last night at McKinney Playground off Faneuil Street.
According to police, the incident happened around 7:40 p.m. near the Keenan Road end of the park:
On arrival, officers located an adult male victim who stated that while walking his dog on the rear baseball field, he was approached by the suspect who was also walking his dog at the time of the incident. The victim stated the suspect approached him and asked if his dog was friendly. The suspect then asked the victim if he wanted to fight or wanted to have the two dogs fight, to which the victim declined. The suspect then began to threaten the victim without cause before pulling out a firearm from his jacket pocket. The suspect then chambered a round and fired one shot into the ground near the shortstop position on the baseball diamond. The victim then quickly fled the area on foot and contacted police. Officers later recovered ballistic evidence at the described location.
Logan was charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, carrying a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say, adding that neither officers nor gun-sniffing dogs were able to find the gun.
