Dorchester Court Evacuated on Report of Gun At Murder Arraignment

The Dorchester Division of the Boston Municipal Court was evacuated during the morning hours on Monday morning and gun-sniffing dogs were brought in to search the courthouse after reports that someone saw a gun being smuggled into the arraignment of the two men charged with the Murder of Toneika Jones.

Kadeem Foreman and Terrell Rainey, both Dorchester residents and 20 years old, are both charged with Jones’ Murder, which occurred at the area of 183 Harvard Street in Dorchester, Massachusetts, this past Saturday. Boston Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office allege that Jones was shot through a steel security door at 183 Harvard Street where she was visiting. Another man that was with her, Keeshon Wilson, 19, of Hyde Park, also suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.

Boston Police report that witnesses saw a man wearing a blue and red shirt firing into the entryway of the building, and one of the criminal defendants, Kadeem Foreman, was also wearing a blue shirt with red sleeves.

No guns or other weapons were found at the Dorchester Court despite a diligent search by gun-sniffing dogs and the Boston Police Department. Both Kadeem Foreman and Terrell Rainey were ultimately arraigned on Murder and Gun Charges, and each were held without bail.
