WBZ reports an officer's gun went off during a struggle over a gun in a man's car during a traffic stop on Washington Street about a block south of Ukraine Way. The man was taken to the hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries in the incident, around 11:20 a.m. Several officers were taken to the hospital as well for observation. Police did not immediately say what the traffic stop was for.


Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


I feel REALLY BAD for anyone who’s in or whose kid is in the daycare right there! Eeek!

So this is why those obnoxious news helicopters were annoying thousands of people for over an hour. So the 4 people who watch local news can see a live shot of a parked car from an aerial view.

Unrelated to this incident but I think you come off as a very sad, angry person and talking to a mental health professional instead of trolling the same website daily might be helpful.

Huh. Maybe it was a good day.

...I'll agree with Kinopio. For situations like this, news helicopters are a nuisance and a hazard.

So are Boston cops.

Now, if this was like the time helicopters hovered over a school where there was a gas leak or whatever, sure, but this is overhead footage of a crime scene to lead off the telecast. Much better than if Anaridis Rodriguez is standing across the street for a live shot in a half hour.

And that said, pissing Kinopio off (which is easy due to the issues he has, but whatever) is a bonus.

This sort of journalistically meaningless "live" footage has been the bane of local news casts ever since it was first introduced.
