BARNSTABLE –The man accused of shooting two Falmouth police officers this past summer has been indicted by a Barnstable County grand jury.

Prosecutors said that as police tried to engage him he became agitated, and ran into the home at 2 Ashley Drive.

Two individuals, Marcus Maseda and Kimberly M. Koval, the mother of both men, allegedly tried to interfere with the officers’ efforts to follow Koval.
