Boston police say man shoots at officers, who fire back

It was a half-hour past midnight Friday, and Boston police officers investigating a slew of drug activity were chasing a man down Blue Hill Avenue. The chase ended in Puddingstone Park in Dorchester, and instead of stopping, the man brandished a handgun, according to court documents.

“Boston police! Drop the gun,’’ an officer yelled repeatedly, according to court records.
