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.
