Shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 4, Massachusetts State Police patrols received a call of shots fired in the area of 66 Stratton St. in Dorchester. Boston Police were able to confirm the gunfire at the scene and issued a report of a white Chevrolet sedan with heavy tint fleeing the area of the shooting.
Shortly thereafter, Trooper David Teixeira, assigned to the Milton Barracks, witnessed a white Chevrolet matching the vehicle description with a Florida registration in the area of Blue Hill Avenue and River Street and initiated a motor vehicle stop.
The operator of the vehicle ran from the scene of the stop, and Trooper Teixeira gave chase. Trooper Teixeira was able to run down the suspect on foot and place him into custody with backup from a Boston Police Officer. Troopers were able to identify the operator and sole occupant of the vehicle as THEODORE ALLEN, 30, of Watertown. Troopers and officers on scene were able to recover a loaded .40 Caliber handgun from underneath the driver’s seat of the white Chevrolet.
Boston Police Officers on scene took custody of ALLEN. ALLEN was scheduled to appear in Dorchester District Court on charges including:
1. Unlawful Possession of a Firearm;
2. Unlawful Possession of Ammunition;
3. Carrying a Loaded Firearm; and
4. Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device.
