Boston cop released from hospital after being shot


BOSTON (AP) — A Boston police officer who was shot in the face and critically injured during a traffic stop two weeks ago has been released from the hospital.

Boston police said Saturday that 34-year-old Officer John Moynihan has returned home to continue recovery and rehabilitation.

The statement says his condition is “serious but improving” and “the road to recovery promises to be challenging.” It says Moynihan thanks the officers whose response helped save his life, and the outpouring of support he and his family have received.

On Friday, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley released video of the March 27 shooting.

Moynihan was shot after he and five fellow gang unit officers stopped a car. The driver shot Moynihan, and continued firing at the officers as he ran away. They returned fire and killed the man.
