JP Man Arrested in Connection With Last Month’s Non-Fatal Shooting

A Jamaica Plain man has been arrested in connection with last month’s non-fatal shooting on Centre Street.

On Tuesday, March 2 members of the Boston Police Youth Violence Strike Force, with the help of the Massachusetts State Police, located and arrested Jonathon Lopez, 24, of Jamaica Plain at Boston Logan International Airport.

Lopez was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant issued out of West Roxbury District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying Loaded Firearm and Discharging a Firearm Within 500 Feet of a Building.

Police took out the warrant for Lopez, which was granted by a West Roxbury District Court judge, following an investigation into a non-fatal shooting last month.

The shooting occurred just before 11 p.m. on Saturday February 6 in the area of 275 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain. During the incident, responding officers located an adult male victim who was transported to a local area hospital for treatment.

Lopez has been arraigned in West Roxbury District Court.
