BOSTON — A man wanted for firearm offenses was arrested Friday in Roxbury and several guns were recovered following a search warrant execution, according to Boston Police Department officials.

At about 3:37 p.m., on Friday, May 31, members of the Youth Violence Strike Force arrested Keon Baker, 33, of Boston, in the area of 3 Monadnock Street.

Baker was wanted on warrants from Dorchester District Court for unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building.

He was later arraigned in Dorchester District Court.

Following the arrest, detectives from Area B-2 obtained a search warrant for the Monadnock Street address, which was executed on Saturday, June 1.

During the search, detectives located and seized three firearms and additional ammunition from the residence.

The arrest and seizure stem from an incident that occurred at about 10:42 p.m., on Thursday, May 23, when officers from District B-2 responded to a shot spotter activation near 725 Dudley Street.

Officers found ballistic evidence at the scene but did not locate any victims or suspects at that time.

The investigation into the shooting and the circumstances surrounding it continues.
