A Massachusetts police officer is killed in the line of duty with his own firearm.
The incident happened Sunday when officer Michael Chesna was responding to a call of an erratic driver near Boston.
The suspect identified as Emanuel Lopes, crashed his vehicle and fled the scene and was later found vandalizing a home.
Chesna then drew his firearm and demanded the suspect to stop.
That’s when Lopes threw a stone at the 42-year-old officer and shot him multiple times with his own gun.

An elderly woman was also killed by a stray bullet, after Lopes opened fire while fleeing police.
The 20-year-old suspect was taken into custody and was hospitalized with non life threatening injuries.
