Bishop transcript raises new questions

Police response appears unusual

Officer Ronald Solimini saw Amy Bishop in back of a building with both hands on a shotgun and slowly backed away as he tried to calm her down. He was scared, he said, because he “knew what just happened.’’

Bishop, who had just raced out of her home after killing her brother, was soon handcuffed and brought to the Braintree police station, where the watch commander said he began filling out the booking sheet with the words: “murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, two counts.’’
