One Less Gun: At about 2:16 PM on Tuesday November 24, 2020, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) arrested Thembani Mazobere, 26, of Roxbury, on firearm related charges after responding to a call for shots fired in the area of 1 Hilton Terrace in Roxbury. While on approach, officers were advised that the suspect had been observed firing two shots before fleeing the area on a moped. Additional responding units quickly located the suspect pushing his moped down a driveway towards the rear of a residence on Abbotsford Street. Upon seeing the officers approaching, the suspect fled on foot, jumping over a fence prompting a brief pursuit. Officers were soon able to catch up to the suspect at which time he was placed in custody without further incident. Officers then retraced the suspect’s path of flight and safely recovered a discarded firearm which was determined to be a loaded .40 caliber Glock 22 handgun equipped with a large capacity magazine and a rail mounted combination laser sight and flashlight.
The suspect will be arraigned in Roxbury District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Carrying a Loaded Firearm and Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device.
