Man Killed By Boston Police Had Criminal History

BOSTON — Authorities say the man shot and killed by police after shooting an officer in the arm over the weekend had a long criminal history and was well known to law enforcement.

The man killed in the Saturday shootout in Dorchester was identified Sunday as 20-year-old Darryl Dookhran.

Police say Dookhran had faced multiple gun charges and as a juvenile was kicked out of two high schools for gang-related violence. In 2011 he was arrested for bringing a loaded gun to Mass Bay Community College in Wellesley, where he was a student at the time.

Police Superintendent Daniel Linskey says the injured officer is recovering at home and is in great spirits.

Christopher Murrain, who was with Dookhran, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on a charge of assaulting a police officer.

    hmm a person who is not even old enough for a pistol permit has a history of gun charges. meanwhile law abiding adults can’t obtain a permit is some towns and cities. so your right can only be exercised with the permission of a local unelected bureaucrat. imagine if any other right was like that. modern jim crow, right here in the commonwealth

      I think you’re confused about what a Jim Crow law is. Your comment is, like most of the many, many comments you make here, largely nonsensical. At least this one’s on topic, though.

        I don’t know why you would be so rude if you want a civil discussion.
        I think a system designed to prevent minorities from exercising their basic civil rights is rightly called jim crow, what would you call it?

      And the right accuses the left of crying racism at every opportunity.
