A Roxbury man was arraigned Thursday on attempted murder and other charges after he caught the eye of Boston Police who heard gunshots while on patrol, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

Hasan Sharif, 23, was arraigned in Roxbury District Court on charges of armed assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm as a second offense, carrying a loaded firearm as a second offense, unlawful possession of ammunition, trespassing, and receiving stolen property.

Davis was previously convicted in 2009 of carrying a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm and served a year and a half behind bars.

Assistant District Attorney Dana Pierce requested that bail be set at $75,000 and that Davis be required to wear a GPS monitoring device, stay away and have no contact with the victim, stay away from the location of the incident, and abide by a curfew if he is to be released. Pierce additionally moved to revoke Davis’ bail in an open case out of the same courthouse charging him with assault and battery.

Judge David Poole set bail in the amount of $30,000, imposed all of the requested conditions, and revoked Davis’ open bail.

Pierce told the court that members of the Boston Police Department were on a routine patrol in the area of Walnut and Townsend streets at approximately 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when they heard multiple gunshots.

The officers then spotted a man, later identified as Davis, running from Munroe Street.

Davis led police on a foot chase through an Elmore Street backyard before he kicked open a stockade fence leading onto Mayfair Street. Police heard a metallic object hit the ground as Davis exited the fenced area and ran back onto Elmore Street, prosecutors said.

Police continued to pursue Davis to the area of the Shelbourne Recreation Center on Washington Street, where he stopped running and finally complied with officers’ commands.

Officers recovered a Taurus 9mm semiautomatic firearm from the fenced area, prosecutors said. The gun was cocked and loaded with a single live round. Police later determined that it had been reported stolen in North Carolina.

While the officers were on scene, they were informed that a 25-year-old Roxbury man suffering a gunshot wound to the leg was found on Munroe Street. The victim was transported to Boston Medical Center and is now expected to survive his injury. At the Munroe Street scene, officers recovered 14 spent shell casings and discovered a vehicle with a bullet hole through the windshield and a second in the passenger side headlight.

Davis will return to court on Jan. 3.
