At about 11:28 PM on Wednesday July 14, 2021, members of the BPD Youth Violence Strike Force arrested Jamari Ellcock-Davis, 22, of Cambridge on firearm related charges as a result of an investigation and ensuing traffic stop in the area of 250 Hanover Street in the North End. The officers were aware that the suspect was in possession of an illegal firearm when they located and stopped a motor he was operating in the area at the time. As the officers approached the vehicle, they observed the suspect reaching behind the passenger seat. Officers forcibly removed the suspect after he did not comply with several verbal commands to show his hands and exit the vehicle. The suspect was placed in custody following a brief struggle which resulted in minor injuries to two of the responding officers. Once the suspect was secured, the officers were able to safely recover a 9mm Taurus G3C 9x19 handgun loaded with 12 rounds of ammunition from the area where the suspect had been reaching inside the vehicle.
The suspect will appear in Boston Municipal Court Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm and Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device.
