Suffolk district attorney rules Boston police justified in using deadly force in 2011 domestic violence case

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F Conley formally cleared three Boston police officers Friday who got into a deadly gunfight with a Dorchester man who opened fire on police as they tried to protect the man’s pregnant girlfriend, her 8-year-old daughter, and the woman’s sister.

The gunbattle unfolded early on the morning of June 14, 2011, on Wentworth Terrace in Dorchester when Tyrone Cummings pointed a 9mm handgun at the head of Officer Charbel Kamel before opening fire on Officers Shawn Marando and Timothy Denio, according to Conley.
