The second Boston police officer shot while responding to a domestic dispute in East Boston last week has been released from the hospital.
Officer Matthew Morris, a 12-year veteran of the force, was released from Massachusetts General Hospital on Saturday afternoon, according to a tweet from the Boston Police Department. He was transported to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital for "continued treatment and care."
Officer Richard Cintolo, a 27-year veteran of the force, was discharged from MGH on Wednesday, according to the BPD.
Both officers were in critical condition after being shot multiple times by 33-year-old Kirk Figueroa on the night of Oct. 12 in Eastie's Orient Heights neighborhood. Figueroa, who was wearing a ballistic vest, had armed himself with what police called a "tactical shotgun" when the officers arrived to investigate an incident between Figueroa and his roommate.
Figueroa was fatally shot by other officers who responded to the scene.
