Weymouth police officer, elderly woman killed after suspect takes officer's gun

Weymouth Police Department

The I-Team has learned that Emanuel Lopes was out on pre-trial probation on a drug charge when police say he shot and killed Weymouth Police Officer Michael Chesna and an innocent bystander Sunday morning. The unidentified woman was fatally wounded by stray bullets in a nearby home, Fox News reported.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on two counts of homicide, either in court or at the hospital.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey says Weymouth police were responding to a report of a person driving erratically Sunday morning when they discovered a crashed BMW. After Chesna fell, Lopes allegedly took the police officer's gun and shot him several times in the head and chest.

WCVB reports that New England Patriots' owner Robert Kraft stopped by the Weymouth Police Station after news of Officer Chesna's death was reported.

Grimes described Chesna as a 42-year-old Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran who leaves behind a wife and two children, ages 4 and 9.

As the procession traveled, dozens of police saluted the vehicle carrying Chesna and police placed bouquets by the Weymouth Police Headquarters.

Chesna was a veteran of the US Army, which he joined "to open doors to become a police officer", Grimes said.

Chesna has been remembered by his colleagues as a "great family man and officer".

A police officer in MA has been injured.

One neighbor said she heard between 10 and 20 gunshots during the incident.

Chesna's body was removed from the hospital and transported via procession of multiple law enforcement agencies to the state's medical examiner office in Boston, where he will be evaluated. "It does happen everywhere".

Prosecutors and state police detectives assigned to the district attorney's office are assisting with an investigation.
