Revere Police NEWS


Revere Police are investigating the non-fatal shooting of a man on Shirley Avenue around 7 p.m. on Monday.

Police responded when the ShotSpotter went off and several reports of gunshots came into dispatch. Officers responded to the 100th block of Shirley Avenue and found a 25-year-old victim suffering from three gunshots to his lower extremities.

He was rushed to the hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.

Police said the shooting was not random, but they have not made any arrests. It remains under investigation.



One woman who was a regular customer at Karla’s Market attempted to rob the store with a ski mask and BB gun, only later removing the mask and saying it was just a Halloween prank.

The incident took place at the Shirley Avenue market on Nov. 6 around 10:30 p.m., and police are setting up a hearing a Chelsea Court to figure out whether it was just a bad joke or a true robbery.

The woman entered the store and showed the replica BB gun while wearing a mask – demanding all the money. The clerk said she recognized the woman’s voice because she was a regular customer. The clerk was scared and fled yelling that she was being robbed.

That drew a crowd of people and it prompted the so-called robber to remove the mask and state  it was all just a joke.

She left the area, but was found later by police. She told them it was a Halloween prank.

Police are investigating.



One UPS driver on his route along Neponset Street last Weds., Nov. 8, likely saved the life of a young man who had overdosed in his parked car.

Around 5:44 p.m., the driver was making a delivery at a home when he recognized a driver slumped over the wheel. On closer examination, the young man seemed to be overdosing. The UPS driver called police, who responded and administered Narcan to the young man.

He was revived.

“Had that UPS driver not called 9-1-1, I don’t know if that person would be around today,” said Lt. Amy O’Hara.



Revere Police are investigating a sudden death that is likely tied to an opiate overdose.

Around 5 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 12, police responded to Lee’s Trailer Park and found the man deceased. Toxicology reports are being done to determine the exact cause.



One man described as a fugitive and having warrants from as far away as Atlanta, was arrested last Wednesday, Nov. 8, around 8 p.m. – with living conditions so remarkably bad that a child in the home was taken to safe refuge.

Police received a call for a suspected child abuse situation on Sumner Street and found a boy playing with a dog. However, inside the home, living conditions were so horrible and in such disarray that police filed a report with the Department of Children and Families – which took custody of the child.

A further check on the male in the home revealed fugitive warrants from Boston and Atlanta.

Kevin Brewington, 31, of Sumner Street, was charged with being a fugitive from justice.
