Worcester Police May Have Stopped Shooting

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

 

The actions of two Worcester police officers may have averted a shooting this weekend. 

As the bars were emptying at the intersection of Water Street and Harrison Street, several Worcester Police officers were deployed in the area to help with crowd control.  

According to Worcester Police, "at this time one of the officers observed a group of males walking down Harrison Street heading towards the crowd of people. The group caught the attention of the officer because they were heading in the opposite direction compared to the majority of the crowd."

As it was closing time at the busy intersection — pizza places and bars — all closing at the same time crowds are generally moving away from the clsoing businesses. There were numerous people in the area leaving the establishments.

One Worcester Police officer observed that a group of men started to engage in a fight with another group of men. During the disturbance the officer observed one male, later identified as Kaibab Gordian, Jr., 20-years-old of 81 Chino Avenue, Worcester, pull a black firearm out from his pocket.

At this time the officer yelled out to nearby officers that Gordian had a gun. According to police, after seeing the police officer, Gordian began to run from the scene. The officer gave chase.

After a brief foot chase the Worcester Police officer caught up to Gordian and ordered him to the ground at gunpoint. Gordian complied.

Worcester Police searched the area in which Gordian was running and found the gun that he had pulled earlier.

The gun is a Beretta .25 caliber semi-automatic handgun. The gun was loaded at the time of discovery.

Gordian was placed under arrest and charged with Disturbing the Peace, Disorderly Behavior, Improper Storage of a Firearm, Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition without a LTC and Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a LTC.

Gordian was arraigned on Monday at the Worcester County District Courthouse.

Worcester Police have not released the names of the officers making the arrest.
