Boston, MA (PPN) – Two Boston doctors was found brutally murdered.
Boston police walked into gun fire after responding to a distress call made from a luxury penthouse. When the authorities opened the door on the 11th floor in the Macallen Building at 141 Dorchester Ave., the murder suspect, Bampumim Teixeira, 30 of Chelsea opened fire.
After firing back and hitting the suspect two or three times, SWAT officers entered the unit and found two people dead.
The bodies of Dr. Lina Bolanos and Dr. Richard Field were found inside the luxury South Boston condominium. Both doctors hands were tied and their throats were slit.
Teixerira was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He will be arraigned in his hospital bed Monday afternoon. No officers were injured.
Dr. Bolanos, 38, was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear and a Harvard Medical School instructor. Dr. Field, 49, worked at North Shore Pain Management as an anesthesiologist.
The Macallen Building is home to numerous high-end businesses and condos, with one selling for more than $1.8 million, according to a listing on the building’s website. Rents also go as high as $5,500 a month for a two-bedroom unit.
Police believe that the murder suspect knew the 2 doctors but have not provided any motive in the case.
“The DA will likely bring charges for two counts of murder here,” Commissioner William B. Evans Evans told reporters.
The penthouse was bought in 2013 for $1.9 million.
Neighbors said that only residents of the penthouse had access to that floor.
“You can’t get up there without a key. The elevators wouldn’t even open the door for you without a key. So there’s no access unless someone lets you in,” said Macallen Building resident Jack Fu.
