Tuesday Shooting Victim Faces Gun Charges Following Investigation

Police find pistol in the shooting victim's closet.

The victim of on Tufts Street has more than his wounds to worry about, according to a police report.

After being shot multiple times, Christopher Freeman of 50 Tufts Street in Charlestown now faces charges for possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number along with failure to secure a firearm and improper possession of a firearm and ammunition.

He previously faced drug charges as part of the Boston Police Department's "."

According to the report, Freeman lived in his girlfriend’s 50 Tufts Street apartment, where police returned Wednesday morning to investigate.

The girlfriend told police that her three children slept in the apartment’s two bedrooms while she and Freeman slept in the living room on a pullout couch. She said they used a doorless closet in the living room for personal storage.

Inside the closet, police found items of men’s clothing as well as a computer bag.

Inside the computer bag, an officer found “a large, gun-shaped object wrapped in a plastic bag.”

Officers opened the bag enough to identify the object inside as a Stallard Arms JS-9mm pistol with serial number that was no longer readable. Officers also found one round of ammunition in the chamber, and three more in the magazine.

Police also verified that Freeman did not have a license to possess a firearm.
