VIDEO: Suspect in Boston Officer Shooting Held on $1.5 Million Bail

The man charged with shooting a Boston drug unit officer bellowed, "Boston police officers tried to assassinate me!" from behind a partially closed door this morning as a Dorchester District Court judge ordered him held on $1.5 million bail, reports the Boston Herald.

Grant Headley, 27, of Dorchester, squeezed off five .40-caliber rounds from a fully loaded semi-automatic gun, striking undercover Boston Police Officer Kurt Stokinger once in the left leg before the handgun jammed, leaving seven rounds in the magazine and a live round stuck before it was fed to the chamber, a prosecutor told the Herald.

"It did jam," assistant Suffolk District Attorney Mark Hallal said following the arraignment of Headley in a courtroom packed with both uniformed and plainclothes police.

Hallal told Judge Jonathan R. Tynes Friday morning's harrowing encounter on Mount Bowdoin Terrace in Dorchester actually began Tuesday when officers from the Drug Control Unit, including Stokinger, a 37-year-old father of two, allegedly observed Headley sell a woman crack cocaine for $20 on Glenway Street.

Tynes ordered Headley held on $500,000 for the drug charges and $1 million for the shooting.
