Commonwealth v. K.R.
Police responded to a radio call for a person with a gun. Upon arrival, they observed K.R., matching the description of what the person was wearing. When police attempted to stop him, K.R. ran and allegedly threw a gun, which was recovered by police. K.R. was arrested and held on $250,000 bail. The defense filed a motion to suppress evidence, and argued that police did not have reasonable suspicion or probable cause to stop K.R for gun offenses. A judge agreed that the police violated K.R.’s constitutional rights and suppressed the gun that was recovered from evidence. The District Attorney was then forced to withdraw all charges and K.R. was released from custody.
