EAST BROOKFIELD- District Attorney John J. Conte confirmed yesterday that an East Brookfield police officer died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest Monday when state troopers tried to serve a warrant and restraining order at his home.
Robert D. Morrow Jr., 45, allegedly turned his gun on himself as two troopers approached him in the driveway at 123 Pleasant St., where he and his wife lived. State police said Officer Morrow led them on a short chase before pulling into the driveway just after 6 p.m. Monday.
Police Sgt. William C. Gregoire yesterday recalled Officer Morrow, saying that his friend had experienced "bumps in the road" recently.
