Gang Unit Grabs Gun and Weed in the Midst of Unruly Backyard Crowd in Dorchester

At about 7:44 PM on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, officers assigned to the Youth Violence Strike Force conducted a firearm investigation in the area of 47 Evans Street in Dorchester which resulted in the arrest of Dijoun Beasley, 25, of Dorchester and a 17-year-old male juvenile also from Dorchester.

During the investigation, officers recovered a Glock .40 Model 22 Gen 4, with one round in the chamber and twenty-one rounds of ammunition in a high-capacity magazine.

Ironically while officers attempted to investigate further one of the wannabe tough guys could be seen clutching a Julia Mejia campaign flyer. He could be seen holding onto it throughout the entire interaction, possibly what one could interpret as a unwavering dedication to possibly who he will be voting for.

Dijoun Beasley and the male Juvenile were placed under arrest and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device. Both suspects are expected to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.
