    Two doctors who were engaged to be married were found dead with their throats slashed inside a South Boston luxury condominium Friday night — and a suspect in the slaying was shot multiple times after exchanging gunfire with police officers.

    Boston police found Dr. Lina Bolanos, 38, and Dr. Richard Field, 49, dead in their 11th-floor apartment after officers were called to the Macallen Building Friday night for a report of a man with a gun.

    While responding to the call, Bampumim Teixeira, 30, of Chelsea, fired on the officers when they confronted him at the door of the penthouse condo and police fired back. Police say Teixeira was shot and hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The officers weren't hurt.

    Charges against Teixeira are pending and he will be arraigned on Monday, according to a statement from the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

    He had previously been convicted of two larcenies, both involving passing notes demanding money at the same bank. No weapons were used in these previous incidents.

    Authorities believe that the victims and the suspect knew each other.

    Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary released a statement addressing the death of Bolanos, who worked there as a doctor. The hospital's CEO John Fernandez said "[she] was an outstanding pediatric anesthesiologist and a wonderful colleague, in the prime of both her career and life."

    Additionally, North Shore Pain Management released a statement about Field, who worked at the practice.

    "Dr. Field was a guiding vision ... and was instrumental in the creation of this practice," read the statement. "He was a valued member of the medical community and a tremendous advocate for his patients."

    Field also worked at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

    Multiple charges are expected against Teixeira, according to police.
