Mass. Bay student caught with loaded semiautomatic handgun on campus
On Feb. 3, at 11:19 a.m., Darryl Max Dookhran, 18, of Dorchester was arrested and charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, a firearm violation with three prior violent or drug crimes, unlawful possession of a large capacity weapon, unlawful possession of a large capacity feeding device, carrying a firearm in a school, unlawful possession of ammunition, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
Massachusetts Bay Community College Public Safety Director John McCune informed Wellesley Police on Jan. 25 that a student had reported a classmate carrying a firearm on campus. The student noticed the gun in Dookhran’s possession during class on Jan. 20, according to a police report.
Dookhran was not licensed to carry a firearm and had been arrested or field interviewed several times in connection with gang crimes in Boston, according to the Boston Regional Intelligence Center.
Police planned to confront Dookhran on Jan. 27, the next day he was scheduled for a class, but Mass. Bay closed because of snow that day. Two other attempts to locate Dookhran, one on campus and one at an MBTA station, were unsuccessful, according to the police report.
Police finally met Dookhran at the Mass. Bay registrar’s office on Feb. 3 and escorted him to a nearby auditorium, according to the report. Detectives informed Dookhran of the complaint by a fellow student, and Dookhran denied possessing a firearm on Jan. 20 or at present. During the conversation, detectives noted, Dookhran pinned his backpack against a wall to shield it from police.
Told he would be frisked, Dookhran attempted to flee and reached for the backpack, according to the report. After they handcuffed Dookhran, police found an Intratec AB-10, a semiautomatic 9 mm handgun, in the bag. The gun had a round in its chamber, according to the report, and 18 additional rounds in a detachable magazine.
Dookhran continued to struggle, according to the report, yelling profanities and racial slurs at police and insisting they had planted the gun on him. In a police interview later, Dookhran said a classmate must have put the gun in his backpack.
Dookhran was held and transported to Dedham District Court.
