Mass. cops use mics to track shooting suspect

The Boston Herald
By O'Ryan Johnson

The Boston Police Department's Real Time Crime Center kicked in last week to help with the arrest of a teen who blasted a pistol in Dorchester -- luckily hitting no one.

On Wednesday at about 7 p.m. the teen fired, not knowing that the instant the sound reached a nearby sensor, he became the target. The BPD's shot-spotter, a system of computerized microphones placed throughout the city, picked up the gunshot on Claybourne Street.
