BRAINTREE, Mass. (AP) - A man who authorities say barricaded himself in a Massachusetts motel room after shooting a police officer in the face has been found dead.

Authorities said Saturday that Braintree Officer Donald Delaney may have to undergo a second surgery to have a bullet moved from his head.

Officers were at the Motel 6 in Braintree, just south of Boston, to check the warrant status of 25-year-old Tizaya Jordan Robinson Friday night when Robinson opened fire, hitting the 36-year-old Delaney.

Witnesses said they heard at least three gunshots. Many rooms at the motel were evacuated and a nearby train station was closed.

Police say officers later entered the room and found Robinson dead. They say Robinson suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including a self-inflicted wound to the head.
