A Boston police officer is fighting for his life after being ambushed by a suspect during a traffic stop in Roxbury.
John Moynihan was shot beneath the left eye and is in critical condition at Boston Medical Center. The suspect, who has not been identified, was later shot and killed by police.
Moynihan was honored by President Obama last year for helping to save the life of MBTA police officer Richard Donohue who was wounded during a gun battle with the Tsarnaev brothers in Watertown following the Boston Marathon bombings.
All I can say now is that I hope Officer Moynihan pulls through and makes a full recovery.
UPDATE:Good news. Officer Moynihan’s condition was been upgraded to stable and is expected to move out of intensive care within the next few days.
