Boston Police Officer Indicted For Allegedly Misleading Shooting Investigation

A Suffolk County grand jury has indicted a Boston police officer who allegedly lied to authorities investigating a shooting in his home that left his wife seriously injured late last year.

Prosecutors allege Korey Franklin, 33, made false statements to a police 911 dispatcher and the officers who responded to the Christmas Eve shooting inside his Hyde Park home, according to a statement from District Attorney Rachael Rollins’s office.

Franklin, a decorated, seven-year veteran of the department, intended to “mislead and impede the ensuing investigation” by providing false information about how the shooting occurred, officials said.

In December, prosecutors said officers responded to Franklin’s home around 1 p.m. on Dec. 24 after the couple had been arguing and found a woman with a nonlife-threatening gunshot wound.
