Stockbyte/Thinkstock(BOSTON) — The Boston man who allegedly shot and critically wounded two police officers Wednesday night has been identified as 33-year-old Kirk Figueroa, the Boston Police Department said.

Figueroa is suspected of shooting the officers after they responded to a 911 call around 10:51 p.m. ET for a domestic incident with the possibility of a person being armed with a gun. Several other officers responded and went inside the residence, where they exchanged fire with and eventually killed the suspect, police said.

“Our officers are out of surgery and recovering,” the Boston Police Department said on its Twitter account Thursday morning. “They remain in critical condition at this time. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.”

No additional information is available at this time about the suspect.
