On the morning of Monday December 10th at about 4:10 AM, Worcester Police were dispatched to Cumberland Farms at 263 Grafton St for a report of a person with a gun. Officers spoke to witnesses who said that the male, later identified as Juan Lopez, forty-years-old of Dudley, was showing the gun off to people and bragging that he did not need protection. He allegedly told witnesses not to “call the cops on him.” Officers shared the suspect description over the radio.
