Maine man and 3 teens arrested on gun charges at Roslindale Cemetery


Four people, including a Maine man and three teenage boys, were arrested Friday night at a cemetery in Roslindale on multiple gun-related charges, police said.

Daishawn Brown, 33, of Eliot, Maine, was to be arraigned in the West Roxbury Division of Boston City Court for unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and unlawful possession of a firearm as a third offense, Boston Police said in a statement Sunday. It was unclear if Brown had hired an attorney.

The teenagers, two 15-year-old boys and a 17-year-old boy, were due to stand trial at the same courthouse on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm, the statement said.

Police responded to a 911 call at 7:06 p.m. for a group of people with firearms at Oak Lawn Cemetery, located at 427 Cummings Highway, the statement said.

Upon arrival, police approached the group and a teenager began to walk away. He was arrested and a loaded gun was found in his belt before being taken into custody, police said.

After police spoke with Brown and the two remaining teens, three firearms were recovered and all three were taken into custody, the statement said.

In April, three young men were arrested at the same Roslindale cemetery on charges of theft and vandalism for stealing the headstone of a teenager who was murdered in 2017.
