2 Dead In Apparent Weymouth Homicide, Police Shooting.

WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Two police officers fatally shot an agitated man armed with at least one knife early Monday morning before finding his mother stabbed to death on the front steps of their home, authorities said. WEYMOUTH (CBS) — Two people have died following an apparent homicide and police-involved shooting in Weymouth overnight, the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office said.

A man suspected of killing his mother this week was reportedly a childhood friend of , who fathered the child of a woman dating the mayor of Boston and acted in several Oscar-nominated films.According to authorities, a 911 call was received by the Weymouth Police Department at 1:04 a.m. reporting a need for assistance at a home on Prospect Hill Drive, which is perched on a quiet peninsula on the Fore River. Local media have reported that the man, identified by the Norfolk district attorney’s office as 49-year-old Paul Campbell, once dated the girlfriend of Boston Mayor Martin Walsh and is the father of her daughter. “This is an extremely personal situation and I ask that Lorrie and Lauren’s privacy be respected at this time,” Walsh said in the statement. “This is an ongoing investigation and it is not my place to speculate on why or how this happened. Two officers and an ambulance were dispatched. “When the officers got there, they were confronted by a white male who was kind of agitated, who gave the officers some great pause,” Norfolk District Attorney Michael W.

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. 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. Campbell is believed to have been friends with Wahlberg before he was famous, starring alongside him in The Fighter, where he played played crack-addict Gary ‘Boo Boo’ Giuffrida, and had a small role in Ted.

He played real life crack addict Gary “Boo Boo” Giuffrida in the 2010 Mark Wahlberg boxing drama “The Fighter,” which takes place in a rough neighborhood near Boston. A Boston Globe profile of Lorrie Higgins from 2014 described Paul Campbell as “a dark-haired rowdy who gradually built up a rap sheet of low-level crimes.” A high school friend of Higgins told the Boston Globe Campbell was “the kind of bad boy…(Higgins) shouldn’t be hanging out with.” Police are still investigating the case and have not suggested a motive for Campbell’s mother murder. 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.

Officials said both were evaluated at a hospital and placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, under normal post-shooting protocols. We get together and do things as a community and I see her at least a couple times a year,” she said. “Any time I’d be outside, she’d stop and we’d talk.
