ROXBURY — Officers from the Youth Violence Strike Force arrested a Dorchester man on firearm-related charges after a routine traffic stop late Tuesday night.

At about 10:05 p.m., police patrolling near Warren and Intervale streets noticed a vehicle without a front license plate and discovered the registration had been revoked due to insurance issues, and the license plate did not match the car.

Upon initiating a traffic stop with emergency lights and sirens, officers made contact with the driver, identified as 27-year-old Shamaun Booker.

After requesting Booker to exit the vehicle, police handcuffed him and found a Sig Sauer P320 handgun with a round in the chamber and nine additional rounds in the magazine.

Booker was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

He is expected to face these charges at his arraignment in Roxbury District Court.
