Bourne Police Officer Wounded In Cape Cod Shootout Leads July 4 Parade

BOURNE (CBS/AP) -- A Bourne police officer who was shot in the back during a Cape Cod shootout in February led the way at the Bourne Fourth of July Parade on Saturday.

Three members of the U.S. Coast Guard were involved in a violent confrontation at a condo complex on the Cape that left one woman shot to death, another woman and Officer Jared MacDonald hurt and the suspected shooter in custody.

Coast Guard spokesman Ross Ruddell said the two women involved were stationed on Cape Cod, while the man suspected of being the shooter was stationed in Virginia. The man had a prior relationship with one of the victims, a source close to the investigation told WBZ-TV.

Coast Guardsman Adrian Loya was held without bail and faces eight charges from the incident, including assault and battery on a police officer, murder and home invasion. He was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation.

It then turned into a "crazy and hectic scene," according to Bourne police Chief Dennis Woodside.

On Saturday night, Woodside told WBZ that "(MacDonald) is apparently making progress and we are awaiting a medical exam to get specifics. I don't have any other information as (of) yet, although we expect some results shortly."
