An alleged gun assault on an off-duty police officer on the VFW Parkway across from the West Roxbury Education Complex entrance this morning led to a massive police response followed a few minutes later by a crash at VFW Parkway and LaGrange Street.
Around 10:15 a.m., an off-duty officer called for help. Responding officers quickly responded, found the two teens who might have pointed a gun at him and detained them. A few minutes after the initial call, a cruiser collided with another vehicle in the intersection.
Police then shut the parkway to divert traffic around the crash scene. In addition to the officer, at least one other person was injured in the crash.
