Roxbury shooting suspect Angelo West
# : Angelo West, 41, has been identified as the suspect killed in a police-involved shooting in Roxbury, Mass., Friday evening. He allegedly shot Officer John Moynihan, a 7-year-veteran of the Boston PD, at point blank range under the right eye.
Angelo West was charged in 2001 in a shooting involving police. Officer Moynihan remains in an induced coma and is in critical condition.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said during a traffic stop on Humboldt Avenue near Crawford Street, Moynihan approached the driver-side door and no guns were visible at the time. He said video footage of the events shows West raising his right arm and shooting Moynihan at “point blank” range under his right eye, the Boston Globe reports.
A female bystander was wounded in the shooting. She is expected to be fine.
The Boston Globe reports in 2001, Angelo West, was charged after a struggle with Boston police officer William Griffiths and Trooper Kevin Murray, while trying to resist arrest. He was found guilty on several charges in that case, including assault with a dangerous weapon.
