BOSTON — Officers from the Boston Police Department’s Anti-Crime Unit arrested a man early Thursday morning after responding to a report of shots fired in the Roxbury neighborhood.

At about 2:56 a.m., on Jan. 18, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) took Lemarr Lovett, 42, of Mattapan, into custody following an alert by the shotspotter system near Warren Street and Blue Hill Avenue.

Upon arriving at the scene, police spotted Lovett leaving the area and noticed he was out of breath.

During the encounter, officers observed Lovett repeatedly reaching into his coat pocket, which appeared to contain a heavy object.

A subsequent frisk revealed a loaded Thames Arms Company .38 Caliber revolver with four live rounds and one spent shell casing in his right coat pocket.

Lovett was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and unlawful possession of a loaded firearm.

He is expected to be arraigned at Roxbury District Court.
