At about 8:47 PM on Sunday, February 2, 2020, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan) responded to a radio call for a person with a gun in the area of 51 Lucerne Street in Dorchester. As officers arrived on scene, they were directed to the area of Lucerne Street towards Callender Street where they observed a gray SUV driving at an accelerated rate of speed. Officers observed the SUV driving erratically throughout various streets in the area. Officers attempted to catch up to the SUV, and eventually located the vehicle which had collided with another vehicle at the intersection of Callender Street and Don Street. At this time, officers observed one male chasing another male in front of 166 Callender Street. Officers pursued the two parties to the area of Carlos Street before catching up to one of them. The male suspect who was being chased by the second male, later identified as the victim, eventually came to a stop in the area of Carlos Street and as officers approached, they were alerted by the victim that the male had been in possession of a firearm. Officers placed the male suspect into custody and further located a Springfield Armory firearm loaded with six rounds of live ammunition while retracing his path of flight. The firearm, as well as a knife, were located in the bushes in the area of 162 Callender Street.

Officers spoke with the victim who stated he was driving down Callender Street towards Blue Hill Ave when an SUV operating the wrong way on the one-way street struck the victim’s vehicle head on. The victim stated he exited his vehicle and approached the SUV in an attempt to speak with one of the two males who had jumped out. The victim stated one of the males brandished a firearm before fleeing the area. The victim stated he gave chase before the male suspect suddenly stopped, turned around, and pressed the firearm into the victim’s abdomen, fleeing again as officers approached.

While officers were on scene at Callender Street, additional responding units located a second adult male victim who was suffering from apparent stab wounds, in the area of Arbutus Street and Irma Street. The male was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Detectives responded to the hospital and spoke with the second victim who stated that while he was walking towards his motor vehicle, he was approached by a male suspect who brandished a firearm. The victim stated he was forced into his gray SUV by the suspect and two other males. The victim stated the suspect had entered the back seat of the victim’s vehicle, while the second suspect entered the driver’s seat and the third suspect retreated to a white Mercedes. The victim stated the suspects demanded the victim’s money before striking him about the head with the firearm. The victim stated the driver handed the suspect a knife which he then used to stab the victim multiple times. The victim stated he attempted to flee the back seat of the vehicle, at which point the suspect fired one gunshot. The victim was successful in exiting his vehicle, as the two suspects fled the scene in the victim’s SUV.

Officers arrested Edward Delossantos, 41-years-old, of Lawrence. Delossantos is expected to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court on charges of Carrying a Loaded Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Armed Assault to Rob, Armed Carjacking, Kidnapping, Assault by means of a Dangerous Weapon and two counts of Assault and Battery by means of a Dangerous Weapon.
