Chesna was taken to South Shore Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Tully said Lopes shot the uniformed Chesna on Burton Terrace five times in the head after first knocking him down with a rock and another five times in the torso and legs. "We very much appreciated his service to the Weymouth Police Department", said Grimes.

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.

Weymouth Police Chief Richard Grimes described Chesna as a 42-year-old Iraq and Afghanistan War veteran who leaves behind a wife and two young children, ages 9 and 4.

He said Chesna's mother once told him "he joined the military to help open the doors to get on this job [as a police officer]".
