A Massachusetts man was arrested June 18 by Manchester Police, charged in a June 16 shooting incident on Cedar Street.
According to Manchester Police Lt. Maureen Tessier, Adrien Stillwell, 19, of Dorchester, Mass., was arrested after he was found to be a passenger in a car police stopped near Derry and Amherst Streets. He is charged with
reckless conduct and felon in possession of a firearm.
The arrest was in connection with an incident in which police were dispathed to 382 Cedar Street on June 16 at about 10:25 p.m. for a report of gunfire. A 17-year-old male told Officer Ryan Heile that someone fired shots at he and two friends. The 17-year-old had minor abrasions on his face and did not require medical treatment at the scene, police said.
According to the teen, he and two friends were standing outside the apartment building at 382 Cedar Street when three males, all in their late teens or early 20s, exited a vehicle and approached them on foot. The victim noticed that one of the men had a gun in his waistband, prompting him to run into the apartment building along
with one of his companions. The second friend ran away from the building.
Just as he started to close the door behind him, the teen heard a shot and felt an impact in the door, next to his head. It appears that debris from that impact caused the minor abrasions to the victim’s face. Police did recover a .22 caliber casing at the scene.
