About 2:21pm yesterday, officers from Youth Violence Strike Force arrested suspect, Brian K. Stokes, 20, of Dorchester and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Dangerous Weapon.
Officers were initially on patrol in the area of Malcolm X Park located on Martin Luther King Blvd when they observed a group of 7-9 young males engaged in a heated argument. Officers, in an unmarked car, pulled over to monitor this incident. As officers continued to monitor the interaction of this group, another individual rode up to the group and appeared to cause the discussion to become even more heated. Officers radioed in for additional units, believing that the situation would escalate into a fight.
The group noted the officers’ presence while waiting the response of additional units and started to disperse. At this point, the suspect more than other members of the group, hurriedly got on his bike and attempted to flee the area at a high rate of speed. Officers, knowing of the recent spate of violence in the area, decided to try to stop this individual for a threshold inquiry.
Additional responding units pursued the suspect while he attempted to evade them, and finally stopped the suspect on Dale Street. There, based on observations made of the suspect, while he was fleeing, officers conducted a pat frisk and felt an object consistent with a firearm in his waistband. The suspect struggled with officers until he was subdued and a fully loaded firearm was recovered from his waist.
