Boston Bombers May Not Be Guilty of Shooting Transit Cop

As the story against the brothers accused of the Boston Bombing continues to disintegrate, we learn that the officer they are accused of seriously wounding may have actually been hit by friendly-fire. Of course, officials are still laying the ultimate blame on the suspects, claiming that they were shooting at police, but this actually has not been proven. Keep in mind that police opened fire on suspect #2 while he was in the boat, even though he was unarmed.

Authorities are investigating whether an MBTA Transit Police officer wounded during the shoot-out with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was hit by friendly fire, State Police spokesman David Procopio confirmed Thursday.

Richard Donohue Jr., 33, was struck in the leg by a bullet, which authorities said remained embedded there. He was listed in serious but stable condition Thursday night at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge.
