A Boston police officer who was stabbed Saturday night while responding to a report of domestic violence in the city's Dorchester neighborhood has been released from the hospital.
The officer, whose name has not been released, was stabbed in the neck. Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief Gregory Long said at a press conference Saturday night that the officer had non-life threatening injuries and was expected to recover.
Police responded to Inglewood Street around 6:15 p.m. Saturday and encountered the suspect on a third-floor landing, at which point the suspect immediately assaulted officers with a knife, Long said.
Another officer shot and killed the suspect.
