SPRINGFIELD, MA – On Thanksgiving afternoon Springfield Police Narcotics Detectives received information that Anthony Domino was in possession of two firearms. Detectives were aware that Mr. Domino was outfitted with a GPS Ankle Bracelet due an open firearms case from a July arrest in Springfield.
Detectives began surveilling Mr. Domino’s 6th floor apartment on the 100 block of Chestnut Street. At some point Mr. Domino became aware of the police presence. Around 2:55pm a car pulled up on Chestnut Street and a man later identified as Kahsim Wilson got out. Detectives then saw a duffle bag tossed from Mr. Domino’s 6th floor window landing near Mr. Wilson’s feet in an attempt to get rid of the firearms in his apartment.
Mr. Wilson picked up the bag, got into the passenger seat of the car he arrived in and the driver sped off. Detectives attempted to stop the car, but the driver refused to stop and began speeding until ultimately losing control and crashing into a fence on Cedar Street. Both the driver and Mr. Wilson began to run away and Mr. Wilson was apprehended after a brief foot pursuit. The driver was able to evade police. Two firearms were located in the duffle bag in the car.
While this pursuit was taking place Mr. Domino made himself known to police and came out of his apartment.
