When an officer arrived on the scene, the suspect attacked him with a rock, knocking him to the ground before stealing his gun, shooting the officer and then engaging in a gun battle with other police that left a bystander dead. Lopes is expected to face two charges of homicide.

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.

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

"He was just a great family man, he was a great officer", Grimes said.

Lopes received non-life threatening injuries during his exchange with police. Her name was not immediately released.
