Lynnfield man accused in shooting on Boston Common detained after arraignment

A Lynnfield man facing weapons charges in connection with a shooting on Boston Common on Monday night that left another man seriously injured has been detained pending a threat to safety hearing at his Tuesday arraignment.

Dana Loder, 30, is charged with carrying a loaded firearm without a license – second offense, carrying a firearm without a license – second offense, possession of ammunition without an FID card and possession of a class B drug. Court records show he also faces charges resisting arrest.

No charges were filed against him Tuesday in connection with the shooting that left a man with injuries that were initially considered life-threatening. Boston police said Tuesday afternoon that the man is now expected to survive and that the shooting is no longer being investigated by homicide detectives.

On Tuesday in Boston Municipal Court, Loder pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and, according to court records, he was detained pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Monday.

The shooting occurred Monday around 10:07 p.m. near Tremont and Winter streets, Detective Sgt. John Boyle, a spokesman for the Boston Police Department, told MassLive. Officers patrolling the area responded to the property after hearing shots fired, police said in a statement Tuesday morning.

At the scene, officers saw many people running away in different directions, including a “suspicious” man who was holding on to his front belt with both hands.

Officers ordered the man, later identified as Loder, to stop, but he continued to run and may have dropped the firearm on the ground while trying to escape. They pursued Loder and eventually arrested him near 131 Tremont St.

Police said that shortly after Loder’s arrest, officers found a man with gunshot wounds on Boston Common. He was taken to a local hospital.
