State Trooper Shot During Manhunt out of Surgery, Recovering

STATE POLICEAUBURN, Mass. (AP) — The State Police trooper injured in the exchange of gunfire with a man suspected of fatally shooting a Massachusetts officer is out of surgery and recovering.

A state police spokesman announced Monday that the trooper, whose name was not made public, had surgery late Sunday night for a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

He was hurt during the search for 35-year-old Jorge Zambrano, who was found in a second-floor bedroom of a duplex in Oxford. Zambrano had been hiding in a closet, apparently after sneaking into that side of the duplex from the adjoining unit.

Zambrano was shot and later died.

Police say Zambrano shot and killed Auburn Officer Ronald Tarentino during a traffic stop early Sunday morning, then drove away from the scene.
