CPD still looking for gun used in shooting incident


Canton detectives have asked for the public’s help in locating a gun that was thrown from a car involved in a shooting in the early morning hours on Sunday, May 17.

Specifically, police believe the gun may have been thrown on Bay Road somewhere between Cobb’s Corner and Route 106 in Mansfield.

Three men have been charged in the shooting, which occurred on Route 138 and Washington Street near Adrienne Drive. The suspects reportedly pulled alongside the victim’s car and fired several shots; however, no injuries were reported.

Mansfield police stopped the car on Route 106 and arrested the three men: Arthur Williams of Randolph and Yancy Williams and Louis Whitehead, both of Boston. All three face firearms and assault charges and are being held without bail pending their next hearing on June 15.

Police are asking homeowners or business owners with a camera on their property to call Canton detectives at 781-828-1212.
