Globe: Donohue may have been hit by friendly fire

Posted: Updated:

(MyFoxBoston.com) – Authorities are now looking into the possibility that the transit officer who was shot was hit by friendly fire.
    
Richard Donohue was hit in the leg by a bullet during the wild shoot out last Friday morning with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects in Watertown. He is currently in serious, but stable condition.
    
A Massachusetts State Police spokesperson told The Boston Globe it's possible he was shot by a fellow officer because of the position of the bullet and the extremely chaotic scene.
    
Investigators say they recovered more than 250 shell casings from the streets of Watertown.
    
VB talked earlier this week with the two firefighters who saved Donohue's life.
