WELLESLEY (CBS) — A MassBay Community College student was arrested Thursday morning after police say they found a loaded semi-automatic gun in his bag.
Darryl Max Dookhran, 18, of Dorchester, is facing several charges including carrying a dangerous weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of a firearm on school grounds.
WBZ-TV’s Paul Burton reports.
Wellesley police made the arrest after investigating a report they received last week that Dookhran was carrying a gun at the college.
At 11 a.m. Thursday, Wellesley detectives approached Dookhran as he was standing in line at the registrar’s office. They led him into a nearby room and say when they told Dookhran they heard he was carrying a gun he backed against a wall. The detectives tried to pat him down, but Dookhran kicked at the officers.
The TEC-9 was found in his back pack. It was loaded with an 18-round magazine and had a round in the chamber.
MassBay officials released a statement Thursday evening saying there was “no indication that the student intended to use the weapon, and campus safety was never compromised.”
Dookhran is being held at Wellesley police headquarters on $10,000 cash bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at Dedham District Court.
