Shot 4 times thank God for his vest!

Props to Boston PD for clearing the path to the hospital and maintaining a presence outside. Way to show up!

This guy might've been a vet... that's unconfirmed but a friend was doing some digging and found military pics pertaining to the family.

Thankfully the officer will recover physically, though we all know being shot 4X can be psychologically damaging as well as either damaging shot could be career ending.

I have the dispatch audio if you want to hear it. The pucker factor is about a 10!

I saw there was a candle light vigil for the shooter near the scene. At first, I was angry but as I watched the story, my attitude changed. I can't speak for anyone at all, but the atmosphere seemed pretty clear, they were mourning a friend and relative who obviously had some very serious issues. I have no problem with that and would like to think that anyone one of US would feel a terrible loss if someone we cared about were to die tragically and needlessly. My heart goes out to those who are in mourning. Of course better him than the Officer, but it's truly sad that ANYONE had to die.

And my feelings are based primarily on the fact that NO ONE started crying for Justice and blaming the cops. Again, I'm going on one newscast, who knows what was going on that wasn't shown, but my outrage diminished as I watched the story.

God Bless the Officer and thank GOD he's out of the hospital already, that's a great sign of his physical recovery, but as SOOTY pointed out, his psychological recovery must be attended to so that he can move on.

The vigil was for the original victim - the reason the neighborhood called 911 in the first place. Not for the shooter.

I wanna know what became of his dog. 😟

(NOT that I want to adopt it - but it's an innocent victim in this. 😪 )
