3 Boston Police Officers Shot, Suspect Killed

A suspect was shot dead by police officers in an encounter in Boston Tuesday. Three officers got injured in the process; their condition is stable now. The events got underway when an individual entered a house, threatening to kill the whole family. Officers were quick enough to respond to the imminent threat by taking preventive measures. The neighborhood was quarantined and warned people against venturing outside their homes.” Anonymous sources said that the suspect was mentally unwell and had a criminal record for long, “reports CBS Boston.

Suspect Started Attacking The Officers

As CBS added, a long negotiation occurred preceding the encounter in the statement made by the Acting Police Commissioner of Boston, Gregory Long. He said,” At some point during those negotiations, the individual fired at the officers striking three officers on the scene. As a result of being fired upon, officers on the scene returned fire striking the suspect. The suspect suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced on the scene.”

One of the building residents informed the police that the suspect was too dangerous and mentally unstable to live. He cited an incident where the suspect threatened his life. The injured police officers are now being attended to with proper medical care in a city’s top-notch hospital. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu prayed for the officers in her tweet.

Police’s Job Is Full Of Risks

Similar instances occurred in the past, where the officers put their lives at risk responding to 911.  Several authorities have voiced their opinions in the aftermath of this event. They have conceded that police officers are always under a life threat, and their job is very demanding.

The whole police department appreciated the efforts of the injured officers after they were discharged from medical care. The officers deserve every bit of our respect for their outstanding display of courage. According to CBS Boston, an authority of higher ranks met the injured officers and spoke highly about the meeting. The source also mentioned that the officers often don’t get the credit they deserve for their work.
