(CBS/WBZ) - Officer Richard Donohue, the transit police officer who authorities say was severely wounded by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects early Friday morning, is out of surgery and has been stabilized.
A transit agency spokesman says Donohue remains in critical condition at Mount Auburn Hospital.
The 33-year-old Donohue was brought to the hospital at about 1 a.m. Friday suffering from a single gunshot wound.
A source told CBS Boston that Donohue was wounded during a gunfight between police and the bombing suspects.
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo says Donohue is the married father of a 6-month-old child. He has been with the MBTA's police department for three years.
Donohue graduated in the same police academy class as, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer who authorities say was killed by the two suspects.
One of the bombing suspects was killed in the confrontation with police. The other, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, remains at large.
