  1. Um, rifle magazine and ammo with a suspect in the bushes and we’re finding out about this in the police blotter?

    Am I missing something?

    1. Not sure about the story. A magazine, ammo, but no rifle? Sounds like some sort of confused duck hunter. But then again no mention of a duck call.

  2. I agree~~~~this is scary ~~~If this happened elsewhere, it would be on the news !!!!
    I don’t get it ??? Jc Right~~Am I missing something ?

  3. This news is alarming. Why are the police so “la-dee-da” about it? We need more facts. Is the suspect in jail? Was he from the North End? Come-on guys….facts, just the facts guys.

  4. Anyone know what happened with the woman screaming on Cooper Street at 3:30am November 14th was? I heard her screaming over and over again, “help me help me” as though she was being attacked but when I looked outside there was no on there. I just saw on a police blotter that she was screaming, “Fire” as well.

  5. In regards to the ballistics / ammo incident, I reached out to Captain Fong a minute ago and hope to have more info to share soon.
