BOSTON -- Authorities say a suspect wanted in connection with the shooting of two Boston police officers is now dead. 
 
The Boston Police Department lifted a shelter-in-place order early Thursday, saying the situation was under control.
 
Authorities say the officers were responding to a report of a person with a gun late Wednesday night in East Boston when they came under fire.
 
Police Commissioner William Evans says one of the officers is being treated for life-threatening injuries. The other officer's injuries appear to be non-life-threatening. 
 
Evans is asking the community to "please pray for our injured officers."
 
No other information was immediately available.
