RE:  Falmouth Officers Shot          


District Attorney Michael O’Keefe and Falmouth Police Chief Edward Dunne announced today that at approximately 5:25 pm Falmouth Police were called to an area on Seacoast Shores Blvd for a disturbance in the street.  They encountered the suspect, Malik Antonio Koval (DOB 5-15-97) breaking bottles in the street.  As they tried to engage him he became agitated, and ran into the home at 2 Ashley Drive. Two individuals, Marcus Maseda (DOB 11-16-99) and Kimberly M. Koval (DOB 6-8-80) tried to interfere with the officer’s efforts to follow Koval.  Koval produced a gun and began shooting at the officers.  It appears from ballistic evidence that the shots were fired within the house. 

Police returned fire striking Koval several times.  He was med-flighted to a Boston area hospital where he remains in custody, in stable condition.

 Officer Don DeMiranda was shot in the chest; however the bullet was stopped by his vest.  A second round hit him in the shoulder area.  He is in good condition at a local hospital.

Officer Ryan Moore was struck in the neck area causing a grazing wound.  He was treated and released from Falmouth Hospital.

 Kimberly Koval and Marcus Maseda were arrested and charged with obstruction of justice; assault and battery on a police officer; and interfering with the duties of a police officer.   

 The matter remains under investigation by State Police detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office and the Falmouth Police.
