Police arrested a man Monday after a gunfight was recorded on a dashcam camera in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.

The suspect, 21-year-old Devaughn Dardy, was arrested after police say he was seen on video firing shots on Dale Street Saturday evening.

Boston Police responded Saturday. No victims were found, but shell casings were discovered.

"I want to commend my officers for the fine work that [led] to today's quick arrest. I also want to thank the vehicle owner for her decision to share this video with our officers," Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said. "If we had more people come forward like that every day, our job would be a lot easier and our ability to solve crimes that much better."

Dardy faces charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, illegal firearm possession and discharging a firearm near a dwelling.

It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
