Scituate Police say they will ask for arrest warrants in Quincy District Court for a Scituate man who, during an altercation early Monday morning, allegedly shot someone with a BB gun and then later held a knife to his girlfriend’s throat.
Police say that after the shooting, 25 year-old Christopher Merrill asked his girlfriend to drive him to Quincy.
When she drove into the parking lot of Quincy Medical Center around 2:30 a.m., Merrill attempted to take her pocketbook and cellphone, while he threatened her with the knife.
Police dogs were called out to search for Merrill who, police say, fled the scene.
Police say Merrill will be charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and kidnapping.
