FALMOUTH – The two Falmouth police officers shot on Friday while responding to a disturbance call continue to recover from their injuries.

Officer Don DeMiranda was shot in the chest; however the bullet was stopped by his vest. A second round hit him in the shoulder area. He is in good condition at a local hospital.

Officer Ryan Moore was struck in the neck area causing a grazing wound. He was treated and released from Falmouth Hospital.

Malik Antonio Koval is accused of shooting the officers on Ashley Dr. just off Route 28.

Officers encountered the suspect breaking bottles in the street. As they tried to engage him he became agitated, and ran into the home at 2 Ashley Drive.

Two individuals, Marcus Maseda and Kimberly M. Koval allegedly tried to interfere with the officer’s efforts to follow Koval.

That’s when Koval produced a gun and allegedly began shooting at the officers. It appears from ballistic evidence that the shots were fired within the house.

Police returned fire striking Koval several times. He was med-flighted to a Boston area hospital where he remains in custody, in stable condition.

Kimberly Koval and Marcus Maseda were arrested and charged with obstruction of justice; assault and battery on a police officer; and interfering with the duties of a police officer.
