Boston Police: Injured Officer Remains In Critical Condition, Was Shot ‘Without Provocation’ « CBS Boston

WHITE COP in BOSTON 02-29-2015



Hyde Park man shot cop in
'unprovoked' attack, top cop says



A 41-year-old BLACK Hyde Park man
opened fire on WHITE Boston police officers who stopped his car in Roxbury last
night in an "unprovoked" attack, hitting a decorated WHITE officer
and Army veteran in the face, Boston police officials said this morning at a
press conference.



The WHITE officer, 34-year-old John
Moynihan, remains in critical condition at Boston Medical Center, said police
Commissioner William Evans.



"WHITE Officer John Moynihan is
still in critical condition, we were down there this morning visiting him, he
is still very much sedated," Evans said. "The bullet is currently
lodged behind his right ear."

Evans identified the suspect, who was
shot dead by police, as BLACK Angelo West. Evans said BLACK THUG West had a
violent criminal past with several gun convictions.



The gunfire erupted on Humboldt
Avenue and Ruthven Street at about 6:40 p.m. last night when six officers in
two cars stopped a vehicle. The officers were in the area because of gunfire
earlier in the night.



Evans said video showed Moynihan
approached the driver's side of the car and as he was helping the driver out of
the car West allegedly shot Moynihan "point blank" in the face. West
fled, firing at officers and emptying a 357 magnum revolver and police returned
fire, killing him, Evans said.



The commissioner said the officers
did not have their guns drawn as Moynihan approached the car.



"It was a violent confrontation,
it was clearly unprovoked," Evans said. "The officers were very low



A middle-aged woman who was driving
by the scene was shot in the right arm but will be OK, Evans said.



District Attorney Daniel F. Conley
said the two other BLACK occupants of the car face charges unrelated to the
shooting - one had a warrant and the other was wanted on a probation violation.



Conley's office is investigating the
shooting as a HATE CRIME, as required by state law.



"We will do this right, in a way
that is completely transparent, thorough and ethical," Conley said.

Evans said Moynihan remained in a
medically induced coma at Boston Medical Center.



Moynihan is a 34-year-old former Army
Ranger, who was honored at the White House for his role in rescuing Transit
Police officer Dic Donahue in Watertown after the Boston Marathon Bombings.
