Ramon Silvelo-Miles, 20, of Lynn, Massachusetts, was arraigned in the Roxbury Division of the Boston Municipal Court yesterday as the second person charged for the Murder of Jaewon Martin on May 8 at the Bromley Heath Housing Development on the Jamaica Plain – Roxbury line. He was held without bail on charges of Murder, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.
The Boston Police Department and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office allege that Silvelo-Mile adn Timothy Hearns (of Dorchester) went to the Bromley Heath Development in Roxbury for the specific purpose of shooting a rival gang member. As Silvelo-Miles waited in the car, Hearns is alleged to have gone to the steps of the development and began firing. Hearns allegedly fired two shots at Martin, one of which struck him in the chest; and then shooting at Martin’s 15 year-old friend in the chest and arm.
Following the shooting, Silvelo-Miles allegedly bragged about his involvement in the shooting, and certain witnesses apparently came forward with that information to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. As a result, Boston Police Homicide Detectives interviewed Silvelo-Miles but he claimed an alibi, which the Boston Police reports was found to be false.
Suffolk County prosecutors in Boston allege that Silvelo-Miles and Hearns belonged to the gang H-Block from Roxbury. The H-Block gang reportedly has a long history of feuding with the Heath Street Gang, many of whose members are believed to be from the area around the Bromley Heath Development.
