Plymouth: Grand Jury Indicts Man Accused of Shooting at Officers and his Wife

A Plymouth man accused of shooting at his wife and police officers is indicted by a Plymouth County Grand Jury on Wednesday.

On April 26th, a 41-year-old woman reported that her husband, 36-year-old Michael Walsh, fired shots at her car while she was attempting to leave the residence at 622 Federal Furnace Road in Plymouth.

When officers arrived, Plymouth Police Chief Michael Botieri says Walsh came out of the house shooting, so police shot back hitting him three times.

Walsh was med-flighted to a Mass General in Boston where he was arraigned the following day.

Walsh is now facing a number of charges including 7 counts of Armed Assault to Murder, Illegal Possession of a firearm and 2 counts of destruction of property over $1,200.

Walsh will be arraigned in superior court at a later date.
