    Delaney was shot in the face when he and other Braintree Police responded to the Motel 6 at 125 Union St. around 9:30 p.m. to serve a warrant regarding a domestic case to 25-year-old Tizaya Jordan Robinson.

    Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey said when Robinson refused to open the door to police, they tried using a motel key. Robinson fired back through a closed door, striking Delaney.

    Officers removed Delaney from the scene and rushed him to Massachusetts General Hospital where he underwent surgery.

    "He's been with our department since 2010, he's been awarded two lifesaving awards with the department," said Braintree Police Lt. Michael Want.

    Robinson remained barricaded inside the motel until almost 2 a.m. when police heard shots ring out.

    Once police checked the room with a robotic camera, they were able to see that Robinson had died of self-inflicted gun shot wounds.
