A 16-year-old boy was arrested early Tuesday in Dorchester on multiple firearm- and driving-related charges, Boston police said.
The Boston teen, who was not identified due to his age, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, driving without a license and several other charges, police said in a statement.
He was expected to be arraigned in Dorchester Juvenile Court.
The teen was allegedly driving at a high rate of speed when police spotted the vehicle at 12:22 a.m., police said. When police tried to stop the car, the boy allegedly kept driving, before pulling into a driveway on Capen Street, the statement said.
The teen got out of the car and ran into the foyer of a house , the statement said. After first refusing to leave the house, he eventually came out and was taken into custody, police said.
Along the path where the teen ran, police found a loaded Kahr Arms P380 gun with one .380 caliber live round in the magazine and an “obliterated” serial number , the statement said.
