A Boston police officer was rushed to a local hospital after being shot in the leg in the city's Dorchester neighborhood Friday morning, reports WCVB.

The plainclothes officer was seriously injured but is expected to recover. He used a department-issued tourniquet to help stanch the blood flow from his wound. The nine-year veteran of the force is a member of the Mattapan Drug Control Unit.

The shooting suspect, identified as Grant Headley, 27, of Dorchester, was in custody and the firearm, a 40 mm handgun, was recovered, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.

40 mm handgun seems awfully large? maybe he meant .40. But then again, in some of those Eastern states there have been an awful lot of stolen equipment. I can only hope the Officer is okay and will be recovering at home. Also that he gets to see if B O's feds are going to work on getting some prison time for the use of a firearm during commission of drug offenses and most likely illegal possession by a prohibited person?
