1 min read

RANDOLPH — Randolph Police arrested a Watertown man Wednesday in connection with an April shooting outside the Mojitos Nightclub, seizing multiple firearms in the process.

Shamere Ross, 33, was taken into custody at 318 Warren St. in Watertown following the deployment of search and arrest warrants by the Randolph Police Department’s Street Crimes and Detective Units, Watertown Police, NEMLEC SWAT Team, and NEMLEC Regional Drug Task Force.

Ross appeared in Quincy District Court facing charges of armed assault to murder with a firearm, carrying a firearm without a license, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, and possession of a firearm.

The arrest stems from an April 20 incident shortly after 2 a.m., when Randolph Police were called to reports of gunfire at the nightclub on Mazzeo Drive.

Investigation revealed Ross allegedly brandished and fired a weapon in the parking lot as patrons exited the venue.

A male victim was targeted but escaped on foot, and although the area was crowded, no injuries were reported.

Police recovered ballistic evidence and noted a vehicle was hit by the gunfire.

Despite initial efforts, officers could not locate the suspect that night.

Further investigation led to Ross’s identification and the subsequent warrants from Quincy District Court on May 28.

The 6 a.m. operation on May 29 resulted in Ross’s arrest and the seizure of six firearms, including three that were reported stolen and one with an altered serial number.

The Randolph Police continue their investigation, with additional charges against Ross anticipated.
