The officers were responding to a “call for a person with a gun” and Boston PD is asking all residents of the neighborhood in East Boston where the shooting happened to stay indoors as a manhunt is conducted.

I'm trying to figure out what you folks mean by "right on time".
On time for what exactly?

The general public don't care if police get shot these days, it's like hearing about a shooting in Chicago.
US trains police to think of everyone as a threat, pull your gun if you feel at all threatened or if the person won't do as you command. Police have the mindset that were below them, just like prison guards do about inmates.

Nothing interesting so far on the scanner, which I've been listening to since right after I posted it. News now says one officer has non life threatening injuries, the other has life threatening injuries. The shelter in place was already lifted because 'the scene is secure' but no mention of finding any suspect(s).
