Photos of Tense East Boston Standoff.

A man wanted on several warrants, holding a shard of glass and a shovel, threatened to jump off  a third floor fire escape and held police at bay for nearly 6 hours. The dramatic sceme played out on East Eagle Street in East Boston yesterday. For the majority of this incident I stayed inside my car with a very large 800mm lens, not wanting him to see me and possibly further complicating the situation or worse. Here is the Herald story by Edward Mason and below are my photos.

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.

The Democratic National Convention comes to Boston. As part of the Boston Herald’s photo coverage, I was assigned to cover any protest flare ups outside of the then Fleet Center. The above photo is of Boston police Sgt Michael O’Connor speaking with two protestors who are telling him: “it’s just chocolate, honest!” The bottom photo is an arrest of a protestor.
