BARNSTABLE - Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe's Office released the names of the victims of the deadly shooting rampage in Bourne early Thursday morning in which one woman was killed  and another two people, including a police officer were injured.

USCG Petty Officer Lisa Trubnikova, 31, of 11 Round House Road in Bourne was killed as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. USCG Petty Officer Anna Trubnikova, 30, of 11 Round House Road in Bourne was wounded in the shooting and remains hospitalized, according to the DA. PO Lisa Trubnikova was stationed at Joint Base Cape Cod and PO Anna Trubnikova was stationed at Woos Hole.

In a statement yesterday, Rear Adm. Linda Fagan, commander of the First Coast Guard District, called the murder a tragic loss.

The assailant, 31-year-old Adrian Thomas Loya of Virginia, is also a member of the United States Coast Guard. Following his arrest Thursday, Loya was arraigned and charged with murder, two counts of armed assault with intent to murder, 2 counts of home invasion, burglary armed assault on occupants, arson of a motor vehicle and assault and battery on a police officer, according to the DA. Loya will next appear in court in March. Authorities are searching Loya's Virginia home and looking into his connection with his victims.

Bourne Police Officer Jared MacDonald was shot by Loya when he responded to Round House Road early Thursday morning for a reported car fire. MacDonald and fellow officers were ambushed by Loya, who reportedly held them at bay after shooting and killing Lisa Trubnikova and wounding Anna Trubnikova in their Round House Road condominium. Officer MacDonald was reportedly shot in the back underneath his vest. He remains hospitalized, according to the DA.

In the release, DA Michael O'Keefe commended Bourne officers for their "great restraint in refraining from discharging their weapons" given the conditions surrounding the incident and the possibility of injuring residents in the condominium complex.
