Two Dead, Including Officer In Weymouth

A Weymouth police officer is dead  after a suspect apparently hit him with a rock, grabbed his service  revolver and shot him.  

Officer Michael Chesna was shot repeatedly in  the head and chest during the incident yesterday morning on Burton  Terrace. 

A female bystander also died after she was struck and killed  by a stray bullet apparently fired by the suspect that entered a nearby  home.  

The suspect is 20-year-old Emanuel Lopes, and he's scheduled to  be arraigned this morning in Quincy District Court.

It is unclear whether that arraignment will be in Court or from the suspect's hospital bed.
