WORCESTER — Worcester Police Department’s Crime Gun Intelligence Unit recovered two guns and arrested two males on gun charges following a vehicle stop and foot chase on Hamilton Street, officials said.

On June 18, at approximately 9:25 p.m., detectives observed 18-year-old Jamary Kilgore, who had an active firearms warrant, inside a vehicle.

When officers initiated a stop, Kilgore and two others fled on foot.

Kilgore, known from a previous CGIU case, was seen reaching into a fanny pack during the chase, prompting an officer to draw his weapon and order Kilgore to halt.

Kilgore complied after a brief continued attempt to escape, and a loaded firearm was found in the fanny pack.

He faces multiple charges including carrying a loaded firearm without a license and resisting arrest.

During the same incident, another chase ensued with 18-year-old Jacob Mercedes, who was observed clutching his right hip suspiciously.

After throwing an object that produced a metallic sound near St. Stephen’s Church, Mercedes was apprehended.

Unable to locate the thrown item, the Drone Unit deployed a drone and found a loaded firearm on the church’s roof.

Mercedes has been charged with multiple offenses including possession of a large capacity firearm and carrying a loaded firearm without a license.

One suspect remains at large following the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
