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

BREAKING: Massachusetts Police Officer Shot and Killed During Traffic Stop - Timothy Meads

Lopes then fled with Chesna's gun to a nearby home where he allegedly killed a woman, prosecutors said.

A MA man suspected of killing a police officer and a bystander with the officer's pistol will not be formally charged on Monday because he is still recovering from wounds sustained during a gunfight with police, officials said.

Another officer arrived and shot Lopes in the leg, prosecutors said.

A man accused of fatally shooting a MA police officer with the officer's own weapon and an innocent bystander is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on murder charges.

Chesna was a military veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, said Weymouth Police Chief Richard Grimes.

Chesna would have celebrated six years with the Weymouth Police Department on Monday.

Weymouth is located approximately 16 miles (26 kilometers) south of Boston on what is known as the South Shore.

Nearby resident April Visco, 43, said she'd heard somewhere between 10 to 20 shots fired before she ran outside and heard someone yelling: 'Get on the ground'.

Massachusetts Gov Charlie Baker tweeted his condolences on Twitter. "Our hearts are very much with the surviving families of these victims", Morrissey said.

Tragedy struck the South Shore of MA on Sunday when a police officer and innocent bystander were killed in Weymouth.

"I hired Mike Chesna six years ago tomorrow", Grimes said.

Chesna's body was transported from the hospital to the state medical examiner's office in Boston. Dozens of police, some tight-lipped and others crying, somberly saluted the vehicle carrying the officer's body, and mourners placed bouquets by the Weymouth Police Headquarters, now draped in black bunting.

Law enforcement groups as near as the Boston Police Department and as far as ME were taking to social media to express their sadness.

Weymouth Police Officer Michael Chesna was killed one day before the sixth anniversary of his hiring by the department.
