may be hiding. that's what's taking place right now. the best place to be is in your home right now the area of glad stone street in east boston so law enforcement can do its job. boston police have swat team members to respond to this 136 gladstone. again two police officers were spot. this is in east boston the orient heights neighborhood and also finding out more information about the suspect or suspects in this case. >> we want to give you a shot you can see this right here on the match of where we're talking about. you're not far from the airport this is white stadium not far from where the shooting is. 136 gladstone street to be
the airport logan responding to this very active scene right now which has prompted a shelter in place. fewer people on the street and find or locate floepfully the individual they're searching for. >> let's talk about the timing real quickly. 10:56 is when they responded. >> a person with a weapon at 136 gladstone street in east boston that's what prompted them to go there in the first place. gunfire had been exchanged two officers were down. you had unconfirmed reports as well that a suspect was down. still getting confirmation on. that we understand from scanner traffic that there have been tunnels at
for emergency crews to get in there and leave and head to the hospital as well. thoughts are with them and family members as well. >> they responded at 10:51 to 136 gladstone street in east boston. it wasn't long after 11:00 that we started hearing the escalating scanner traffic during our 11:00 newscast. so it looked like it didn't take lock this is a look here ock new video just in of police responding to this officer-involved shooting. >> we want to thank tony stark for the images that you are seeing right here. you also see the helicopter up above and the ambulance as well. as they try to make sure that they take care of this just as quickly as possible. as you can see reaction the video will pan from right to
at the zi you will see they have the lights right here and that's the helicopter shed some light down on the scene from above. state police helicopter i would guess at this point so they are in the area as well. so they're in the air literally over the scene. police on the ground and medical personnel that need to do their job to be protected at the same time. as you mention the scanner traffic saying the swat team and personnel are coming in to make occur to the point where they can take care of these injured officers. >> and get the ambulance and start the search for any remaining suspects out here right now. again a shelter in place as you can see on the screen where these two officer were shot about 10:51 the first call came in. in the past 20, 25 minutes they have asked that a shelter in place be put into
this is a situation where they need you off the streets in your homes with your doors and windows locked. try to ride this out as they do their work. >> john monahan is probably about now i would guess getting very close to the scene. he has been working his sources on the way making phone calls trying to get you more information. we do have a photographer on the way with as well so hopefully we can updates on these officers conditions and some more information about the search for a suspect in this case because as i've been saying i people who live in in that neighborhood you can imagine. >> 136 gladstone street in east boston. they had a report of a person with a gun and apparently a couple officers shot. that's what we're looking at
