BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston Police arrested two 17-year-olds in Roxbury on firearms charges Saturday.

Officers assigned to the Youth Violence Strike Force recovered two loaded firearms from teens while out on patrol in the area of Blue Hill Avenue and Washington Street following an earlier report of shots fired.
