Really sad situation today in Weymouth MA, as Officer Michael Chesna was shot and killed today while on duty-
CBS News– “A Massachusetts police officer and bystander have died from wounds sustained when a suspect allegedly took the officer’s gun and fired following a vehicle crash and a foot chase. Authorities say Weymouth officer Michael Chesna was shot multiple times before 8 a.m. Sunday, and died from the injures at South Shore Hospital.”
The suspect who shot and killed Officer Chesna and the bystander is in custody and is expected to be arraigned on two counts of homicide on Monday.
Officer Chesna would have celebrated his 6th year anniversary with the Weymouth Police Department tomorrow and leaves behind a wife and two young daughters.
