Police and an ambulance crew were called shortly after 1 a.m. to a home in Weymouth, south of Boston, on a report of someone needing assistance and were confronted by 49-year-old Paul Campbell, according to the Norfolk district attorney’s office. Both officers decided simultaneously that deadly force was necessary and opened fire on Campbell, who was brought to South Shore Hospital and pronounced dead, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement. Morrissey said. “We’re still investigating this matter, but the individual appeared to be armed with a couple of knives and he came at the police officers.” Both officers discharged their weapons.

Officers found a woman’s body on the steps of the residence with multiple stab wounds. “There is no such thing as a routine call. . . situations like this illustrate that,” said Weymouth Police Chief Richard Grimes at a press conference this morning. The male was struck and incapacitated.” “While the cause and manner of death will be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, there was evidence of stabbing injury,” Traub said. In keeping with police department protocol, the officers were also transported to the hospital for evaluation, and they will be on administrative leave.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh told the media when asked about the shooting, “This is an ongoing investigation and it is not my place to speculate on why or how this happened.” 3.
