I had just left one photo assignment and was headed to another when the Inman square branch of the Cambridge Savings Bank was allegedly robbed. The calm and cool Cambridge police dispatcher monitored and broadcasted positions of the perpetrator, aided by a GPS unit that was purportedly placed inside the money bag by the bank. The trail went from the Inman Sq. area toward the Somerville police station where Somerville and Cambridge police stopped MBTA bus #0658 on the 91 Route. There he was, and there I was. See my photos below and Boston Herald colleague Richard Weir’s story here.

August 31 started off quietly as I went about my 6:30am to 2:30pm shift at the Boston Herald. A police scanner call came in late in the morning that would put me on alert. The Everett police dispatcher warned city police units of a bank robbery on Broadway. I headed that way because the a police officer stated that he had spotted the suspect. A foot chase ensued and the man was shot on Tufts Avenue after making a move toward police as he held a knife. Story here.

Everett police officers tend to a man that was just shot by an Everett police officer.
