Teen faces gun charges after gunfire on Annunciation Road; police say he tried to flee by taking the subway two stops, but they were waiting for him

Boston Police report arresting a teen on various gun charges Friday night after gunfire was reported on Annunciation Road.

Police say witnesses told officers that after the gunfire, shortly before 6:50 p.m., they say a male run to the Ruggles T stop, wearing a shiny puffy jacket with a white hood, blue jeans and no mask. Police searched the station to no avail, but other officers headed to the next outbound stop, Jackson Square, just in case:

While in their marked Boston Police patrol wagon, they observed a male fitting the above description, specifically noticing the shiny jacket, coming up the escalator from the train level. The officers exited their vehicle and approached the male, at which time the suspect took off running out of the station towards Centre Street. The suspect ran across Columbus Avenue onto Ritchie Street. He continued running onto Slayton Way, and then back out onto Ritchie Street where he was taken into custody.

As officers began to pat frisk for weapons, a firearm fell from the suspects jacket onto the ground. The firearm, a Taurus 380 was loaded with (1) round in the chamber and (5) rounds in the magazine. Officers also recovered a large plastic bag containing several smaller bags, which contained a white powdery substance.

The teen, too young to have his name released, was charged with being delinquent for unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, possession of Class B drugs and resisting arrest, police say.

A big chunk of the housing development has addresses on the street. There’s a difference between a tiny street in the woods with a dozen people living in it and one right in the city with hundreds of people including a known gang.

The citizens of Boston should have the right to know the names of teens running the streets with guns,
