The Boston Police Department is reporting that they pulled over a 13-year-old who was driving through the area with a loaded gun.
The incident occurred on Monday in the area of 144 Columbia Road.
A patrol officer looked up the license plate and noticed that the plate did not match the car’s registration and conducted a traffic stop.
The teen, however, initially refused to pull over and continued driving at a slow rate of speed.
When officials eventually did get him to stop, they made him step out of the vehicle. Once the teen stepped out of the vehicle, a gun fell out of the leg area of his pants.
“The firearm was determined to be a .380 Ruger loaded with one (1) round in the chamber and (5) rounds in the magazine,” said police.
The teen was taken to a juvenile facility.
Authorities have recommended that he be charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, operation of a motor vehicle without a license, attached registration plates, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, and refusing to stop for a police officer.
