Boston police say an officer has suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being shot in the city’s South End.

Officer James Moccia told the Boston Globe on Sunday that the officer was taken to a local hospital with a gunshot wound after being called to “investigate the premises” at a residential address. It wasn’t immediately clear why police were called to the address.

Police say the suspect has been taken into custody.

An Associated Press photographer witnessed a large police presence at the scene. Several surrounding streets were closed to traffic and a crowd had gathered to watch the police activity, peering over yellow police tape.

The injured officer is being treated at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Mayor Martin J. Walsh is expected to visit the officer.
