Suspect in slaying of Boston doctors to appear in court on Monday

The suspect is 30-year-old Bampumim Teixeira, who reportedly missed shooting the police officers; however, police fired back at him multiple times, wounding the suspect in the process.

Officers let themselves into the penthouse after discovering a set of keys outside the apartment and gunfire erupted when they encountered the suspect.

An engaged couple - both accomplished MA doctors - was killed in a chaotic attack Friday night that ended with police shooting and wounding a suspect in South Boston.

Dr Field, 50, also an anaesthesiologist, worked at North Shore Pain Management.

"His tragic and sudden passing leaves an inescapable void in all of us", a statement on the clinic's website read, calling Field "a tremendous advocate for his patients". His lawyer entered not-guilty pleas for the two counts of murder, the Associated Press reported.

He said police entered the apartment and were confronted by Teixeira. It was filled with jewelry belonging to Bolanos, according to police. "We will do all we can to support their families and our staff members who are processing this senseless tragedy and grieving an enormous loss", said President and CEO of Massachusetts Eye and Ear John Fernandez.

Authorities say Teixeira has a pair of larceny convictions on his record.

Neighbors in the Macallen building are still trying to process the news.

Teixeira was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. He said the couple was "very sweet and accommodating" during that process.

Dr Bolanos worked at Massachusetts Eye and Ear hospital as a paediatric anaesthetist and was an instructor at the Harvard Medical School.

But Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Daily Caller: "ICE has no legal position with regard to this individual at this time, although we will continue to monitor the matter in case his criminal charges change his legal disposition". Building resident Jack Fu is wondering the same.

The building has high security, including security cameras in the lobby and a 24/7 concierge, Golden said. Colleagues, friends, and family of the victims interviewed by the Globe said they did not know of a connection between the doctors and Teixeira. He added that they are looking in to any kind of employment Teixeira may have had in the area and how he was able to access the doctors' home. In June of past year, Teixeira demanded money at a Boston bank by passing a note.

Bampumim Teixeira, 30, of Chelsea, Massachusetts, was ordered held without bail by Suffolk County Judge Michael Bolden, the county prosecutor's spokesman Jake Wark said in a statement. After he was identified for that incident, he volunteered responsibility for the 2014 crime to officials.

Teixeira's ex-girlfriend told the Boston Globe he was a former security guard who had just finished a nine-month sentence for robbing two banks. The scene is still being processed, and investigators say the processing could take more than a week.

Teixeira spent the weekend in the hospital, and it's unclear if he will be arraigned from his hospital bed or if he will appear in court.
