On December 19th 2017 at approximately 8:30 pm multiple 911 calls were made to the Barnstable Police Department regarding gunshots being fired on Frost Ln. Officers responded to the scene and learned that following a road rage incident in Yarmouth, a white Honda with 4 occupants followed another vehicle back to Frost Ln in Hyannis. Upon arriving home and running inside, the two Frost Ln. residents immediately heard gunshots outside. Another occupant of their home went outside and a male verbally threatened to shoot him and then fired more rounds from a handgun.

Further investigation by Yarmouth and Barnstable patrol officers led to the discovery of the suspect vehicle in Marstons Mills. After gathering evidence at the Hyannis scene and interviewing multiple eyewitnesses, 21 year old Nicholas Beale of Dennis was determined to be the suspect that had fired the gun on Frost Ln.

Barnstable Police then acquired an arrest warrant for Beale and a search warrant for his residence at 288 Route 28 in Dennisport. At approximately 4:15 pm on December 20th Barnstable and Dennis Detectives arrested Beale at his home and located the firearm he used the prior evening after the road rage incident.

Nicholas Beale was charged with 3 Counts of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon (Firearm), Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Discharging a Firearm within 500 feet of a Dwelling. Beale is currently on probation in Plymouth District Court and was detained on an additional warrant for OUI Drugs and Liquor. He will be arraigned in Barnstable District Court on Thursday December 21, 2017.
