No Bail for Accused Shooter of Falmouth Officers

posted by Walt Perkins - 

The man charged in the shooting two Falmouth police officers will be held without bail for another 120 days, under an agreement between the prosecution and defense.

A dangerousness hearing was held Wednesday in Falmouth District Court for 21-year-old Malik Koval, of East Falmouth. He’s charged with shooting Falmouth officers Donald DeMiranda and Ryan Moore in July as they responded to a reported disturbance involving a group of people including Koval.

Both officers survived, and Koval was shot several times as police returned fire. DeMiranda was shot in the shoulder, and his bulletproof vest stopped a shot to his chest. Moore suffered a bullet graze wound to his neck.

Koval’s lawyer has requested funds for a psychiatric evaluation and an investigator.

 A judge has scheduled a probable cause hearing in the case for Sept. 26.
