Inmate who shot cop at hospital unlikely to be arraigned
Raymond Wallace is unlikely to appear in court because of his very serious medical condition
BOSTON — Authorities say the prisoner who was shot during a struggle with deputies in a Boston hospital emergency room is being treated and is unlikely to be arraigned Thursday.
The Suffolk District Attorney's office says 36-year-old Raymond Wallace is unlikely to appear in court because of his very serious medical condition.
Police say two deputy sheriffs were accompanying Wallace to an appointment at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary on Wednesday when Wallace suddenly tried to snatch a gun from one of them.
In the struggle that followed, police say one deputy was shot in the leg and his partner fired at Wallace, hitting him in the chest.
Wallace had been in jail awaiting trial on armed robbery, masked robbery and firearms charges.
The shooting is being investigated.
