    Pop star Taylor Swift has donated several tickets to the Weymouth Police Department for her upcoming concert at Gillette Stadium.

    The generous gift comes during a time of grief as the department continues to mourn the loss of Sgt. Michael Chesna, who was killed in the line of duty on July 15.

    Other police departments who assisted with the tragedy were given tickets to the Thursday concert, according to the Quincy Police Department.

    Chesna was hit in the head with a large rock then shot multiple times with his own gun after he responded to the scene of an erratic driver and crashed vehicle. He was buried at Blue Hill Cemetery in Braintree.

    Another woman, 77-year-old Vera Adams, was allegedly shot and killed by the same gunman.

    Swift will perform at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
