A Massachusetts police officer's family says he's in good spirits but faces a long recovery after being shot at a condominium complex where a Coast Guard petty officer was killed and another wounded.

Bourne officer Jared MacDonald's relatives released a statement Friday saying he's doing well and asking for privacy. The statement was released by Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, where he's being treated for a gunshot wound to his back.

The shootings Thursday in Bourne killed 31-year-old Coast Guard Petty Officer Lisa Trubnikova and wounded 30-year-old Coast Guard Petty Officer Anna Trubnikova. Officials haven't disclosed the two women's relationship or the motive for the shooting.

Another Coast Guard member - Adrian Loya, of Chesapeake, Virginia - pleaded not guilty to charges including murder and is detained without bail.
