Three Massachusetts men are being held without bail after police say they allegedly threatened to kill a teenager on Facebook Live.
Weymouth Police say Michel Kedersen Jr., 19, of Hyde Park, Jonathan Bonner-Minus, 21, of Hyde Park, and Claude Rosier, Jr. 20, of Dorchester, were taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon.
Police said an officer was dispatched to an apartment on Donald Street for a report of a man inside a vehicle waiving a gun around.
When the officer arrived, the vehicle passed him but was subsequently stopped up the road.
After the three men were ordered out of the vehicle, the officer found a firearm sticking out of a black bag on a seat.
When police went back to the apartment, the victim told police that the suspects had live-streamed threats on Facebook to shoot him and told him to "stop hiding." The victim has not been identified by police.
Kedersen, Bonner-Minus and Rosier were all taken into custody. Police believe they are part of the H-Block Gang in Boston.
Among the charges all three men face are possession of a firearm without an identification card, possession of ammunition without an identification card, possession of firearm with a defaced number, felony threat to commit a crime, conspiracy, and witness intimidation. They pled not guilty during their arraignnent Wednesday in Quincy District Court and were ordered held without bail pending their next court date.
