At about 10:00 AM on Tuesday March 30, 2021, members of the BPD Youth Violence Strike Force located and arrested Rohan Wynter, 24, of Roxbury in the area of 16 Rockland Street in Roxbury. At the time of his arrest, the suspect was wanted on an outstanding straight warrant issued out of Roxbury District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Discharging a Firearm within 500 Feet of a Dwelling.
The warrant was sought by District B-2 Detectives following an investigation which was launched on Wednesday March 10, 2021, after the suspect presented himself at a local area hospital claiming to be a shooting victim. The suspect claimed that he had been shot during an earlier incident in the area of Clifford Street but investigators later determined that the gunshot wound was accidently self-inflicted.
The suspect is expected to face arraignment in Roxbury District Court.
