Boston man accused of shooting at 21 police officers during - Sunday night's violence

Posted: Jun 5th, 2020 - 6:06 am

BOSTON - A Boston man is accused of firing upon at least 21 of the city's police officers during a night of violence and looting that started late on Sunday.

John Boampong, 37, of Dorchester is being held without bail following a Wednesday hearing in Boston Municipal Court, during which Suffolk County prosecutors presented evidence to prove that he presented a danger to the public.

He was arraigned on 21 counts of armed assault with intent to murder in connection with the shooting that happened on Providence Street in the early hours of Monday morning.

Prosecutors accused Boampong of firing 10 shots toward Boston police officers after a confrontation with them in the Back Bay.

Judge Paul Treseler dismissed a motion filed by Boampong to dismiss the 21 charges and held him without bail under a statute that allows a judge to hold a defendant accused of certain offenses without bail for up to 120 days pending trial upon “clear and convincing evidence that no conditions of release will reasonably assure the safety of any other person or the community.”
