boston police have confirmed that officer was shot in the area of mt. bo din terrace this morning around 10:25. that officer rushed to the hospital. sky fox over the scene now. boston medical center. the ambulance we do believe is carrying the officer that was shot is backed in. we do not have any idea on that officer's condition, where he was shot or the circumstances of the shooting at this point either. streets were closed off to clear the way for that ambulance to make its way to the boston medical center where that officer is now going to be attended to. details -- more details should be coming to us momentarily as boston police commissioner bill evans is at the boston medical center. no doubt check the condition of his officer first before updating all of us as to what exactly transpired and the condition of that officer. we are trying to confirm right now that a suspect has been taken into custody by boston police at this point. there are reports that that has happened in the area of geneva avenue. we're working to confirm all of that information for you as
again, we're still not sure what exactly were the circumstances here or what happened as the shooting took place less than a half hour ago. so it's all come together very quickly here. you may recall the last officer shot in the line of duty in boston was in april of 2015. that's when officer john moynahan was shot in the line of duty. shot at point blank range in the face, you recall. he did manage to recover from those injuries miraculously. but that was the last situation we dealt with in terms of of a botch police officer being shot in the line of duty. again, this is sky fox at the scene over boston medical center where the the officer was taken. we don't know the extent of the injuries or the circumstances of the shooting. as mentioned boston police commissioner bill evans is at boston medical center and no doubt updating everyone e everybody on the situation. check in with our colleague,
closely the ambulance route and roads that were closed. >> reporter: i want to give you an idea of where this was happening zoom in to the location that we have heard mt. body din terrace, where we believe the police told us the shooting had taken place. columbia road to dorchester avenue was shut down, so the ambulance we showed you live pictures of from sky fox could make their way to boston medical center. we've heard various reports about road closures so-so the ambulance could get there on time. there are those lives pictures we were just telling you about. as gene mentioned, we don't know the extent of the officer's injuries. but police are all responding to make sure that that ambulance could get to the location of boston medical center, could get the treatment he needs. and as far as traffic effective, we do have some of the road closures columbia road and dorchester avenue and boston medical center to make sure everything was cleared out. nothing was going to slow that ambulance down. gene. >> all right.
the situation. sky fox is over boston medical center. you can see an ambulance there that we do believe transported the officer to the hospital. we do know the officer is there and treated for a gunshot wound. the extent of which we don't know at this time. we don't know where the officer was shot. we're working to confirm what type of wound he may have suffered right now. and also the circumstances that led up to the shooting. we do know it happened at about 10:25 this morning in the area of mt. bo din terrace. and the area was blocked off and cleared as that ambulance was rushed to the hospital where that officer was taken and being treated. various reports right now. we're not sure, again, where he was shot. we're trying to confirm some information that he was there. until we get that confirmed we won't pass that along, as far as the injury is concerned. we also are confirming or working to confirm that the suspect was taken into custody at geneva avenue, that there was some sort of foot chase involved here.
concerned after the shooting of that boston police officer. so, good en, a very fluid situation that we're dealing with here right now, boston police commissioner evans was actually in virginia last night nor the town hall meeting that president obama held on the executive orders that he's filed in terms of adding some new measures to make -- to toughen up gun control laws that he spoke about the other day and the commissioner was in attendance at that event. he is back in boston, at the hospital, and we'll be expecting to hear from him shortly to get the details exactly what happened in this situation and the condition of that officer and get the details on that. but, again, it was about 10:25 this morning when this happened. so he was shot within the last half hour or so. and they moved quickly to get him into that ambulance and get him to the hospital. so quick work there by first responders and boston police officers to tend to the wounded officer who was shot in the line of duty.
julie grauert on this. julie, police responded quickly to get the roads blocked off so they wouldn't have any interference at all to get the officer quickly as possible to the hospital. >> reporter: and we know how challenging traffic can be any time of day in this area in the city. so i want to i've good you an idea if you're just joining us, this is live pictures of that ambulance that they blocked off various roads so it could get from mt. bow din terrace to boston medical center. you can see police surrounding the scene there. this is happening it happened in dorchester, a little closer look at where exactly. mt. bowdoin terrace, like we mentioned to you. then they shut off columbia road to dorchester avenue. they wanted to make sure the ambulance could get to boston medical center without any major issues. they first got that call around 10:25.
work to get the injured officer to the hospital. and that ambulance has been there for the past five, seven minutes. so they did a very good job of clearing out those roads, making sure that nothing was going to slow them down and they could get the injured officer to the hospital. we haven't confirmed the extent of the officer's injuries, we are working to get that information for you. but countless police responding to this scene. we've also heard that they're working on that suspect. and we're waiting to confirm as to where that suspect is exactly, what condition he or she may be in. we'll continue to bring you the latest all of this unfolding over the past 25 minutes or so. >> yeah, it all happened very quickly as there was a lot of scanners. and a lot of concern, obviously, from officers involved. and what we're trying to piece happened. the officer shot at 10:25 when
bowdoin terrace in the neighborhood. some sort of foot chase ensued. and that went down to geneva avenue area. we do believe the suspect is in custody at this point. we have not confirmed that yet. we're working to do that. geneva avenue was shut down while that ambulance was transported to the hospital. the extent of the injuries we don't november. and we've now confirmed from boston police that suspect is indeed in police custody. and we've also confirmed now that the police officer was shot in the leg. so that is starting to piece together here. so let me just refresh you now on what we know. boston police have confirmed for us, that indeed an officer was shot today, that was this morning, about 10:25, mt. bowdoin terrace and please have now confirmed that officer was shot in the leg. officer quickly transported to boston medical center. that's what you're seeing on the screen now, the ambulance in the bay there, we believe was the one that was carrying the
treated for his leg wound. the extent of that injury we don't know at this time. police have also confirmed to us that they did have a suspect -- they have a suspect in custody, i should say. so it was quick work by boston police after the shooting to apprehend that suspect. he was taken in the area of geneva avenue, 201 geneva avenue, we believe. still piecing this together, a waiting to hear from the boston police and boston police details on what the situation was that led up to the shooting, what was happening in that particular area. and the chase that ensued that led them to the suspect who they now have in custody in boston police -- boston police now have that suspect in custody. so details still working on exactly what happened and how that officer is doing right now. i think it's a relief to know, based on the previous boston officer who was shot, and, again, that was in april of 2015, when officer john moynahan was shot in the face. it's a bit of a relief to know that this officer was shot in
so that is a wound that apparently would be something that would not be major in nature, however, we still don't know the circumstances of that. but certainly, you would think that would be something that they could treat a lot easier than the situation officer moynahan was facing back in april of last year of 2015. if there's any good news to come out of it, that would be it. we still don't know the circumstances of that. how serious the wound was or what exactly that led up to the shooting, what police were doing at that time. if they were trying to apprehend somebody, if there was an arrest being made in that process. we still don't know any of that, at this particular time. but we will be getting details from boston police commissioner bill evans shortly on what exactly happened there. and how that police officer is doing. everybody has their fingers crossed for him. suspect is in custody. police were able to track him down quickly. and they were able to have him.
a police officer was shot, shot in the leg, transported to boston medical center. and police now have a suspect in custody. let's check in once again with julie grauert and she's been helping us with the coverage. >> reporter: gene, we were saying 3o 1 mt. bowdoin terrace, that's is where they picked up the police officer who was shot in the leg. this is mt. bowdoin terrace where this red icon is. this is geneva avenue right here. i'm going to try to highlight that yellow for you. you can see very close proximity to where that officer was picked up in the ambulance and where police have confirmed they caught this suspect. geneva avenue right here and mt. bowdoin terrace there. then we've been reporting police closed many of those roads so 24th could get the officer to the boston medical center in a prompt manner. as you can tell, by this map, wasn't far from where the
the ambulance and where that suspect was apprehended by police. so this is geneva avenue, 201 is the location that we believe officers have confirmed that suspect was taken into custody. they've blocked down that perimeter very quickly and able to get the situation under control. as gene mentioned, we've also confirmed that officer shot in the leg, which as he said is much better than what could've been very very serious situation. and we're working to confirm his condition and learn more exactly about how he's doing. as far as the map is concerned, the ambulance made it to boston medical center very quickly. we've been showing you those live pictures from sky fox. and here we go again with more live pictures from sky fox. looks like a police scene. they've pulled out from the picture of the ambulance at the hospital. and you can see nearly a dozen officers and one, two, three, four police cars at this location.
confirmation, as this is if scene at 301 mt. bowdoin terrace. >> not gotten confirmation, that's exactly what we're seeing right now. but it is in that area. and a very large police presence there. as this investigation is unfolding very quickly this morning. as julie mentioned, 10:25, first reports of officer shot came in. and shortly thereafter they were able to bring a suspect into custody on geneva avenue. we heard reporting on scanners of a foot chase involved. we don't have that confirmed as of yet, as to how the boston police department was able to get the suspect into custody but they do have a suspect in custody. again, the boston police officer shot in the leg and transported to bon of medical center and able to get there pretty quickly this morning. boston medical center has hand handled a lot of violent shootings and wounded nature
an officer shot in if leg is a lot better than previous reports we've had in the past of an officer shot in the line of duty in april of 2015, for example, when officer john moynahan was shot in the face, point blank range, in roxbury, and officer moynahan survived that but was seriously wounded. in that case, da released video of the shooting and suspect in that case was killed by return gun fire by boston police officers. that was not the scales today. the boston police officer was shot in leg and they apprehended the suspect who is now in custody at geneva avenue. still waiting to get more details as to what exactly was happening, what boston police were doing, what type of situation it was, were they conducting some -- trying to issue a warrant or a stake out or was there an arrest in process. we don't know the circumstances of the police action that led to the shooting. we're waiting to hear from the
evans at boston medical center and he'll let us know what the circumstances were that led up to the shooting. the officer being transported to the hospital with the leg wound and the officer -- the suspect being taken into custody all of this happening at 301 mt. bowdoin terrace. an ambulance was able to get there quickly and through the help of boston police closing off streets in that area, including columbus avenue, they were able to get that officer to the hospital very quickly. and we're also expecting to hear a press conference from the boston medical conference as well where we can get an update on that officer's condition. so we can find out exactly how he's fairing, a lot of folks concerned about him, for obviously reasons. the only good news, again, we don't know the extent of the injuries but we do know he was shot in the leg, hopefully not a severe wound, hopefully they can treat and take care of quickly. but that boston police officer was shot in the line of duty
and, again, boston police have not been able to get us any information as to what exactly led to the shooting or how that all came in. you can see fox 25 live over the scene now, an officer may have been looking under a vehicle there, trying to gather some evidence, obviously, as they go through the scene and continue their investigation. perhaps, the investigation that led up to the shooting as well as investigating the shooting itself and what happened there. as soon as we get all of that information from boston police, we will pass it along to you and confirm it for you as well. but as we approach the top of the hour, 11:00, fox 25, we want to remind you and update you what exactly happened at 10:25 this morning. reports of an boston officer shot in the line of duty, confirmed by boston police, that officer shot in the leg and quickly transported to boston medical center where he's being treated at this time. shortly after the shooting, boston police say they were able to apprehend a suspect. geneva avenue.
