BOSTON (WHDH) - A Boston man is facing gun charges after officers allegedly found a loaded gun on his scooter after a traffic stop Saturday, police said.

Officers patrolling the area of Washington and Ashmont streets in Dorchester at 6:45 p.m. stopped Ryan Hinds, 22, for driving a motorized scooter without a license and for having an outstanding warrant, police said.
