The incident began around 10:51 p.m. Wednesday at 136 Gladstone St. when officers responded to a home for a domestic call.
Within 15 minutes, there were reports of an officer shot. Two officers were shot and taken to the hospital with critical injuries and nine more were injured in what Mayor Marty Walsh described as a “gun fight.” Figueroa was shot and killed.
Commissioner William Evans says Kirk Figueroa was wearing body armor and armed with an assault rifle.
According to a website, Figeroa was the founder of a private security firm.
On that website, Figueroa’s biography states he spent eight years with the Army Reserve’s military police battalion.
