SHOOTING IN CAMPBELL AVE HOME
Revere Police detectives and State Troopers assigned to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office are investigating a shooting that severely injured a man on Campbell Avenue early on July 17.
Revere Police responded for a 9-1-1 call reporting an injured person in the area of 104 Campbell Ave. Inside the residence, they found a 33-year-old man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for emergency surgery.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Revere Police at 781-286-8340 or State Police at 617-727-8817. Any observation of people, vehicles, or activity in the area of Campbell Avenue at around 2 a.m. could be helpful and no piece of information is too small to share, investigators said.
FOILED SCOOTER THIEVES
Astute Revere Police officers foiled two alleged scooter thieves in their attempt to sell the scooters online.
On July 20, the victim reported to the station and told officers that he saw his stolen scooters for sale online. Officers took in the information and started a quick investigation. They soon learned the scooters did belong to the victim and were for sale online.
Officers called the number given online, and made contact with the seller.
After some negotiations over the selling price, they agreed to meet the alleged thieves in Revere. Police set up surveillance, and one man showed up with the scooters.
He was arrested.
A second man was sought, but not located. He is being summonsed for the stolen scooters as well.
Akheem Tucker, 23, of 305 Cooledge St., was charged with receiving stolen property over $1,200 and one warrant.
Kyle Randazzo, 24, of 82 Arlington Ave., was summonsed for receiving a stolen motor vehicle.
PULLED A NUTTIE ON TOW-TRUCK DRIVER
A Ward Street man is being charged with several serious crimes after he allegedly got infuriated over his vehicle being towed, and drove it right off the tow-truck on Saturday, July 14.
Around 1:37 p.m., a tow-truck driver was towing a vehicle on Ward Street when a man came out of a building screaming at the driver. The man confronted the driver and then pushed him.
At that point, the driver called police.
However, as he did that, the irate man got into his vehicle – which was on the tow jack – and began to try driving away. Soon enough, he succeeded, breaking the car off the tow truck and destroying the tow lift.
On the way away from the scene, he ran over the tow-truck driver’s foot, causing him great pain.
Officers have summonsed the man to court.
Emmanuel Severino, 36, of 175 Ward St., was charged with malicious destruction of property over $1,200, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and assault and battery.
