Boston (AP) — Police in Boston say an officer shot and killed a man after he allegedly stabbed another officer in the neck.
Authorities say officers from the Boston Police Department were responding to a report of domestic violence at a home in Dorchester early Saturday evening when they encountered the suspect in a stairwell.
Police told The Boston Globe the man was armed with a knife and stabbed one officer in the neck.
Another officer shot the alleged suspect, who was pronounced dead at a local hospital. He has not been identified.
The injured officer was taken to a hospital where he remains in serious condition. He is expected to recover, according to Sergeant Detective John Boyle, a Boston police spokesperson.
The Suffolk County district attorney’s office will investigate the shooting.
