Police officer shot in face, shooter holed up in motel room

A veteran Braintree police officer who was shot at a Motel 6 is expected to survive, while the suspect was found dead.

Witnesses say they heard three gunshots.

Morrissey said Robinson had a history of multiple weapons violations and was found to have an active warrant from Dorchester District Court for domestic assault and battery, kidnapping and threatening to commit a crime.

Officer Donald Delaney, 36, who joined the Braintree Police Department in 2010, underwent surgery at Boston Medical Center yesterday as doctors tried to remove the bullet that was lodged in his head, District Attorney Michael Morrissey said.

"One wound that appeared consisted with self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head area", said Sullivan.
