Boston special ops cop survives shooting; saved by protective vest

By Laurel J. Sweet, David Weber and Kevin Rothstein, The Boston Herald

BOSTON - A Boston police special ops cop whose partner took a bullet in the face less than a month ago was shot yesterday while he, too, was closing in on an armed and dangerous suspect during a dicey pre-dawn raid.

But unlike the still-healing Scott O'Brien before him, Officer Kevin Ford, 49, was spared life-threatening injury.

The .45-caliber Glock round that caught him by surprise when it punched through the cheap wooden door behind which suspected pot pusher James "J.J." Nolan, 25, was lurking, struck the bullet-proof vest over Ford's abdomen.
