(NECN)  - MBTA Transit Police Chief Paul MacMillan released the following statement about Officer Richard Donohue, Jr., who was critically injured Friday:

“Facing extraordinary danger, Officer Donohue never hesitated in fully engaging the terrorists in order to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth.  I am extremely proud of him, and cannot say enough about his heroic actions.   There has been a tremendous outpouring of support, and the Donohue family wants to thank all of those who have offered their prayers and support.

The family also wishes to extend its sincerest condolences to the family of Officer Sean Collier, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.  Officer Donohue represents the best that the law enforcement profession has to offer, and he exemplifies the dedication and commitment of the MBTA Transit Police Department.”
