WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) – The transit police officer who authorities say was severely wounded by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects is out of surgery and has been stabilized.

A transit agency spokesman says Officer Richard Donohue remains in critical condition Friday at Mount Auburn Hospital.

The 33-year-old Donohue was brought to the hospital at about 1 a.m. Friday suffering from a single gunshot wound.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo says Donohue is a married father of a 6-month-old child. He has been with the MBTA's police department for three years.

Donohue graduated in the same police academy class as Sean Collier, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer who authorities say was killed by the two suspects.

One of the bombing suspects was killed. The other remains at large.
