Two young men were arrested, and police are searching for two more suspects after the four threatened a student outside Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School in Dorchester with a firearm Monday afternoon, police said. Earlier in the day, two of the teenage men, who do not attend the school, had attempted to enter the school, saying they were there to observe basketball tryouts; they were stopped by police, police said. The suspects returned later with two other men and engaged in a “verbal altercation” with a male student outside the school’s gym, police said. Police arrested Kwame Browder, 17, and Dashaun Harris, 22, both of Dorchester, and seized a firearm from Harris’s backpack, authorities said.
