â€œAnna and John were in the kitchen,â€ Mr. Weller said. â€œOff the back door of the kitchen, thereâ€™s a step-down to a portico. Thatâ€™s where the cops came. John was standing inside the kitchen. Anna said all she heard was: â€˜Freeze! Freeze! Pop! Pop!â€™ Then she heard a thud â€" him falling â€" and then him moaning.â€
Shortly afterward, Mr. Weller said, â€œthe police officer was very upset and kept saying, â€˜What did I do?â€™ The other officers were trying to console him.â€
The State Police are investigating. Officer Romero has been placed on desk duty in the meantime.
