    Walsh had allegedly fired shots into a vehicle that his 41-year-old wife was in. She fled the scene looking for help, and her husband went back into the house, according to police.

    When officers arrived at the scene, Walsh came out of the house and fired at officers. Law enforcement returned fire, shooting him.

    No officers were injured, but seven were transported from the scene for precautionary reasons.

    Police say Walsh was previously known to the department.

    Walsh is scheduled to be arraigned at 2 p.m. on Friday at MGH on a host of charges, according to officials. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

    The investigation is ongoing.
