- Braintree police officer Bill Cushing is set to be released from the hospital this morning. He was one of two officers hurt last Friday when his team responded to a report of a domestic incident in the area of the Braintree Village apartment complex. And Sky High is over Union Street by Braintree right now along Route 3, where you can see a police flag is in the process of being hung up there. And it will be flown.

His fellow officer 34-year-old Matthew Donohue was also shot in the incident. And the department's canine officer Kit was killed in this shooting. Officer Donohue was released from Boston Medical Center on Saturday afternoon.

And the procession today for Officer Cushing is set to begin any minute now. So we are on standby for that. Braintree Police say he will be escorted home by his fellow police officers and canine family.

This procession will come off of Route 3 at Exit 40 at the Union Street Rotary in Braintree. And it will then follow Union Street to the lights at Union and Washington. It will then be taking a left turn onto Washington Street, which will take Officer Cushing past Town Hall, where he will pass Braintree mayor and his staff. And we are expecting to hear from town officials, as well, this morning.

The procession will then continue through South Braintree square. And it's going to end in the area of Pearl Street. And the public is invited to stand along this route to show your support.
