RE: Falmouth Officers Shot
District Attorney Michael O’Keefe and Falmouth Police Chief Edward Dunne announced
today that at approximately 5:25 pm Falmouth Police were called to an area on Seacoast Shores Blvd for a disturbance in the street.
They encountered the suspect, Malik Antonio Koval (DOB 5-15-97) breaking bottles in the street.
As they tried to engage him he became agitated, and ran into the home at 2 Ashley Drive.
Two individuals, Marcus Maseda (DOB 11-16-99) and Kimberly M. Koval (DOB 6-8-80) tried to interfere with the officer’s efforts to follow Koval.
Koval produced a gun and began shooting at the officers. It appears from ballistic evidence that the shots were fired within the house.
Police returned fire striking Koval several times. He was med-flighted to a Boston area
hospital where he remains in custody, in stable condition.
Officer Don DeMiranda was shot in the chest; however the bullet was stopped by his
vest. A second round hit him in the shoulder area. He is in good condition at a local hospital.
Officer Ryan Moore was struck in the neck area causing a grazing wound. He was
treated and released from Falmouth Hospital.
Kimberly Koval and Marcus Maseda were arrested and charged with obstruction of
justice; assault and battery on a police officer; and interfering with the duties of a police officer.
The matter remains under investigation by State Police detectives assigned to the District
Attorney’s Office and the Falmouth Police.
