By Tiffany Williams –

On Friday night, at approximately 10:09 p.m., officers with the Boston Police Department assigned to District B-2 responded to a call for a ShotSpotter activation in the area of 89 Fayston Street in Dorchester.

Upon arrival, officers located ballistic evidence and property damage to two parked motor vehicles.

Following the initial incident, several parties fled on foot and entered a nearby residence. Upon searching the immediate area, officers located and recovered two discarded firearms.

When officers failed to make contact with the individuals who had fled inside the apartment, it prompted a response from BPD Negotiators as well as members of the BPD SWAT Team.

At approximately 12:44 a.m., officers made entry into the residence and eight individuals were removed and transported to District B-2.

After all individuals were interviewed by detectives, one individual, Sirrocko Landrum, 32, of Dorchester, was arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm and Discharging a Firearm within 500 Feet of a Dwelling.
