Fall River -
Police arrested an alleged armed gang member after a foot chase and seized a loaded handgun.
The 16-year-old boy is charged with carrying a firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without a firearms identification card and receiving stolen property.
Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Bernier said Officers Gregory Wiley and Brett Kimball were monitoring Kennedy Park for gang activity on Tuesday, when about 4:45 p.m., they noticed the suspect and another known gang member walking on Division Street.
"The known juvenile was carrying a heavy object in his pants," Bernier said.
When the juvenile saw the officers, he ran and entered a yard on Fountain Street with Wiley in pursuit. The officer retrieved a handgun that the suspect allegedly threw to the ground and continued the chase, Bernier said.
Police said the second alleged gang member, Joseph Migliori, 20, of 752 Dwelly St., chased Wiley with Kimball following Migliori.
Kimball said Migliori blocked the entrance to the yard where the juvenile and Wiley entered, preventing Kimball from assisting Wiley, Bernier reported. Migliori was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace and interfering with a police officer.
Police set up a perimeter to keep the juvenile in the immediate area. Officer Jose Barbosa subsequently found the suspect hiding in a shed on Eagle Street.
Another 16-year-old boy was arrested after he allegedly exited a house and yelled at Kimball as he was arresting Migliori, Bernier said.
"The second juvenile was aggressively interfering, and when approached by additional police, he ran from the area," Bernier said. He is charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and interfering with a police officer.
The recovered .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun with one round in the chamber and six in the magazine was reported stolen in Providence.
