A Boston man was arrested Sunday night for illegally possessing a loaded gun at the Tufts Medical Center station, MBTA Transit Police said.
Manuel Peters, 58, who gave as his address a homeless shelter in the city, was charged with multiple firearm-related charges, Transit Police said in a statement. Peters did not have a license to carry firearms.
Transit Police responded to a request for a well-being check on a “highly intoxicated“ man around 8:51 p.m. at the Tufts station and saw Peters was showing “signs of extreme inebriation” and carrying a fully loaded 32 caliber handgun, the statement said. They removed the gun from Peters and took him into custody.
