Brockton Police arrest two after shooting, standoff



Today, a Brockton District Court Judge will formally charge a 27-year-old man with assault & battery with a dangerous weapon and the discharging of a firearm within 500 feet of a building after a shooting incident early this morning on Davids Street.

Brockton Police received a gunfire alert from ShotSpotter, the city’s electronic gun detection system, showing that shots were fired on Davids Street shortly before 1:30 a.m. Police also received calls from residents.

No one was injured, but three vehicles did sustain damage from the gunfire.

Police quickly arrived on the scene and evacuated a building as a precaution for residents’ safety. Officers found Kenny Rodrigues, of Brockton, holed up inside 33 Davids Street and immediately sent for the Special Reaction Team.

“The crisis negotiator for the Brockton Police SRT communicated with the suspect, who then exited the residence, and we took him into custody without incident,” said Lt. Paul Bonanca, Chief of Detectives.

Members of the Brockton Police SRT executed a search warrant on the first-floor apartment. They seized one Glock firearm, one long rifle, two high capacity ammunition magazines, assorted ammunition, crack cocaine, and another gun on the ground near the address.

Police also arrested 32-year-old Luis Rodrigues. He faces multiple drug and weapons charges.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the case can contact the Brockton Police Detective Bureau at 508-941-0234.
