1 min read

FRAMINGHAM —Yesterday at around 6:10 p.m., Framingham police apprehended an armed suspect following reports of gunfire near the 135 Restaurant & Lounge on Waverley Street.

Responding to the shots fired call, officers located the suspect inside his pickup truck on Bridges Street.

Despite multiple commands, the suspect failed to cooperate, prompting police to use a less lethal shotgun to break the vehicle’s window for a clearer view and to issue further instructions.

The suspect continued to resist and concealed his hand, leading to the deployment of a K9 unit to facilitate the arrest.

During the arrest, the suspect hit the police dog several times before officers were able to detain him.

A loaded firearm and an additional loaded magazine were found in the suspect’s vehicle, along with ballistics from the original crime scene.

No bystanders were harmed during the incident.

The suspect sustained minor injuries, was treated at a local hospital, and is now in police custody.

Authorities have assured the public there is no ongoing threat.

The suspect faces arraignment today on multiple charges, including injuring a police dog, possession of a high-capacity feeding device, possession of ammunition without an FID card, receiving a firearm with a defaced number, carrying a loaded firearm without a license, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, and disorderly conduct.
