Michael Wiggins, 18, and Lamar Brison, 20, were both arraigned this morning on Massachusetts Gun & Crimes of Violence Charges in connection with a shooting that left two people hospitalized. Each were charges with several Gun Crimes, including Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Assault & Battery and Intimidation of a Witness.
According to the Boston Police Department and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, two men were shot in Dorchester’s Codman Square on Monday at around 9:00 p.m. Both men were taken to Boston area hospitals with gun shot injuries that were reportedly non-life-threatening.
Later that night, Boston Police Officers were called to Boston’s Carney Hospital where one of the gunshot victims was being treated to receive a report from a purported witness of the shootings. The unidentified woman told police that she had witnesses the shootings and thereafter was allegedly beat by Wiggins and Brison and threatened not to report what she had seen.
The woman, however, gave a description of the two individuals and Boston Police Officers arrested Michael Wiggins and Lamar Brison at a Dorchester apartment on Wheatland Avenue. A search of the apartment allegedly resulted in the seizure of several items of evidence related to the shooting, including clothing the witness described the two men as wearing that night, as well as a .22 caliber pistol.
