No Bail for Accused Shooter of Falmouth Officers

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.
