From TheBlaze: A Boston police officer and former Army Ranger — honored for his role in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing — remained in an induced coma fighting for his life Saturday after being shot in the face during a traffic stop, authorities said.
The suspect in the shooting hopped out of the stopped car on Friday evening and opened fire on officers, striking Officer John Moynihan just below his right eye and an apparent bystander in her arm, police Commissioner William Evans said.[…]
Evans said the suspect, 41-year-old Angelo West, had a violent criminal history with several gun convictions, WBZ said. West was arrested in 2001 after he allegedly fired at police officers trying to arrest him after witnessing West complete a drug deal, the Boston Globe reported.[…]
“This is not about ‘Black Lives Matter,’” he said, CNN noted, referring to protests after the shootings. “It’s about all-the-lives-in-the-community matter and it’s about the police … responding to a concern from the community.”
Here’s a clip of protesters confronting and taunting police following the shooting; one protester could be heard instructing others, “Everyone put their hands up!”
