Man Shot, Killed By Boston Police Had Long Criminal History
BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say the man shot and killed by police after shooting an officer in the arm over the weekend had a long criminal history and was well known to law enforcement.
Police say Dookhran had faced multiple gun charges and as a juvenile was kicked out of two high schools for gang-related violence.
In 2011 he was arrested for bringing a loaded gun to Mass Bay Community College in Wellesley, where he was a student at the time.
Police Superintendent Daniel Linskey says the injured officer is recovering at home and is in great spirits.
Christopher Murrain, who was with Dookhran, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on a charge of assaulting a police officer.
