Police say two men showed up at Hyde Park field with a loaded gun

Boston Police report arresting two men, one from Hyde Park and one from Randolph, on gun charges at Ross Playground in Hyde Park yesterday after somebody called 911 to report a guy with a gun there.

Police say that on scene, witnesses pointed out two men and a woman and said that one of the men had pulled out a gun during an argument at the basketball court shortly before 4:30 p.m.

Officers spoke to one of the males who was observed to be wearing a GPS monitoring device on his ankle. During this interaction, officers made note of the second male carrying a black backpack. A frisk of the backpack led to the discovery of a Glock 26 loaded with thirteen rounds of live ammunition. Both of the males were taken into custody. The female was identified and released from the scene.

Alleged GPS-device wearer Travis Seales, 19, of Randolph, and alleged backpack wearer Messiah Leggett, 20, of Hyde Park, were charged with unlawful possessino of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm without a license and possession of a large-capacity firearm, police say.
