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.
