At about 7:21 P.M. on Thursday, September 23, 2021, Officers assigned to District B3 (Mattapan) made an onsite firearm arrest of Darius Manor, 41, of Woburn, in the area of 67 Standard Street.
After clearing a 911 call, a Sergeant assigned to District B3 observed a group of males engaged in a physical altercation in the area of 67 Standard Street. The Sergeant exited his marked police cruiser, and gave commands to the group to stop fighting. All but two parties, Manor and the victim, stopped fighting. As the Sergeant approached the two males, he observed Manor holding a firearm, and the victim actively trying to prevent Manor from pointing the firearm at him. Upon seeing the imminent threat that the victim was in, the Sergeant drew his firearm and began to give loud verbal commands for Manor to drop the gun, and to get on the ground. The Sergeant continued to give verbal commands, while also requesting additional units to the scene. Manor refused commands and instead crouched behind a nearby vehicle.
Manor then stood up and began walking away and refused commands to stop and to get on the ground. Responding units were able to stop Manor a short distance away and place him into custody. Manor continued to resist officers, and refused to get into a cruiser. Officers on scene called and requested a transport wagon to safely transport Manor to the station to be booked. Officers searched the area behind the vehicle where Manor had crouched and immediately observed the firearm that the Sergeant had seen him attempting to point at the victim.
The firearm was determined to be a Glock 9mm with one (1) round in the chamber, and fourteen (14) rounds in the magazine.
Manor is to be charged with Assault and Battery, Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (gun), Mayhem, Unlawful Possession of Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Firearm (Second Offense), Armed Career Criminal Level I, Carrying Loaded Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device.
