Daniel Cote, 32, of Revere, is facing assault and weapons charges after allegedly opening fire on Revere Police.
According to Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden, police responded to the intersection of Broadway and Fernwood Avenue at approximately 9:30 p.m. on April 8. Upon arrival, officers found Conte, who was said to be acting in a threatening manner and waiving a 9mm handgun. When police ordered Cote to drop the gun, he allegedly responded by firing an unknown number of rounds at the officers. Police returned fire and struck Cote in the leg. He was then taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Two officers were also taken to the hospital to be treated for emotional distress.
In addition, police recovered a handgun, used ammunition casings and a hypodermic needle from the scene.
Cote was arraigned in Chelsea District Court on April 11. He was then sent to Bridgewater State Hospital for mental evaluation.
