    A Boston police officer has been indicted by a grand jury after being accused of lying about a deadly shooting in September.

    Thirty-seven-year-old Monicka Stinson is charged with lying to investigators about her contact with a homicide suspect in the hours after two murders on Interstate 93, in which 30-year-old Lance Holloman has been accused of committing.

    Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said Stinson has been suspended without pay.

    "I hold my officers to the highest of standards, and expect them to cooperate with investigations, regardless of any personal connections to those involved," he said in a statement.

    Marjory Stoneman Douglas High senior Emma Gonzalez had a message for president Donald Trump and for other politicians on their failure to enact sensible gun laws: "BS." Gonzalez was one of several survivors to speak at a rally held outside the Federal Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to speak out against the gun lobby.

    Stinson is a 10-year veteran of the Boston Police Department.

    Holloman, of Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, was arrested in mid-September on three unrelated warrants, but was eventually charged in two separate homicides in Boston.

    Thirty-two-year-old Scott M. Stevens Jr. of Taunton and his 53-year-old father were shot as they rode their motorcycles on Interstate 93 near the Neponset Avenue exit; the younger Stevens eventually died from his injuries, while his father survived.

    Holloman is also accused of gunning down 24-year-old Michaela Gingras of Manchester, New Hampshire, inside a Dorchester residence the same day of the Interstate 93 shooting.

    He's been ordered to be held without bail.
