On Saturday, June 20, at 10:49 p.m. Wareham Police Officers Calib Larue and Scott Cowan responded to an address on Swifts Beach Road for a man shot in the face with a BB gun.
Information was received that the suspect had fled the scene in a dark-colored pick-up truck; however, the officers were able to determine who the suspect was and where he lived.
Juvenile Detective Karl Baptiste, Officers Lorenzo Grosso, and James White proceeded to the suspect’s residence. At that location, officers observed the truck parked in a space and noticed a BB gun on the front console. When the suspect opened his apartment door, the officers advised him he was under arrest; however, he resisted and attempted to shut the door.
The suspect continued to resist arrest flailing his arms before being handcuffed. After the suspect was subdued, the officers located a loaded firearm tucked in his waistband.
Bryan Ewan (62), of 815 Main Street, Apartment 7C, was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery, possession of a firearm without a permit, possession of ammunition without a permit, and resisting arrest. The male who was shot received non-life threatening injuries, and it was not a random incident.
