A Chelsea, Massachusetts, man will be charged with two counts of murder in connection with the killings of two Boston doctors who were found dead in their penthouse apartment Friday night, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office said this morning.

The suspect, 30-year-old Bampumim Teixeira, was found by officers who responded to a 911 call about a gunman at the Macallen Building in South Boston Friday night. The suspect immediately began firing at the officers when they confronted him, causing authorities to fire back, police said. The suspect was shot multiple times and, after a violent struggle, was placed in custody and hospitalized, police said.

The victims were identified as Richard Field, 49, and Lina Bolanos, 38, who were engaged, according to Bolanos’ employer.

Bolanos was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Mass. Eye and Ear, said John Fernandez, president and CEO of Mass. Eye and Ear.
