Police gave chase, an officer on Sandra bullock [sic] movie detail at Shawmut and Washington also joined in the chase, and the suspect was captured, the Boston Police Department said in a statement, which credited the quick-thinking detail officer on the film's set with arresting the triple stabbing suspect.
It's unclear what sparked the fight or if any of the men involved were employees of the Social Security office.
Boston residents who were watching the filming of The Heat recalled officers rushing to the scene of the triple stabbing.
I saw the cops running, and I took off after them. I saw a kid running down Shawmut Ave., and all the cops were pursuing him. I think he threw something in the woods, and now the cops have the park all blocked off, said Bradley Fuller, a resident of Boston's Roxbury neighborhood. Fuller was referring to Edward O. Gourdin Park, according to the Boston Herald.
Fuller then got on his bicycle and rode to the Social Security office parking lot and said he saw the victim being attended to by EMS personnel.
They were pumping his chest. It looked like he was only about 14 years old. It's so sad, he's just a baby, the Boston man said.
A 51-year-old Boston man who only wanted to be identified as Mr. C told Boston.com that he also saw officers rushing to the scene of the triple stabbing, saying he saw cops scatter everywhere.
Their radios went haywire, I guess, the man said.
The Heat, which also stars Melissa McCarthy, who appeared in the hit comedy Bridesmaids, is slated for release in April 2013.
An FBI agent teams up with a Boston police officer to take down a Russian mobster, is how the film's plot is described on IMDB.
