As other police officers came to support the Watertown Police Department during the manhunt Thursday night and Friday morning, a transit officer was wounded. Watertown Police Department Chief Ed Deveau now says that officer is on the road to recovery.
Deveau went on Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning and talked about how the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing manhunt, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, ran away from police and hid in a boat. He said police were optimistic that they would catch Tsarnaev after the initial firefight, but he got outside their perimeter, and he wasn’t discovered in his hiding place — a boat — until much later.
Deveau also talked about Richard Donahue, the transit officer who was wounded in the gunfight, and said he is “getting stronger every day.”
