On Monday the jury also heard from Boston Police Officer Scott MacIsaac. He was the first officer who walked into the couple’s condo on May 5th. He testified that he saw a silhouette. He believed Teixeira was holding a gun.

“Can you just demonstrate for the jury how you saw this person you know holding heir arms. Let the record reflect that the witness is holding his hands together out stretched in front of body your honor,” said prosecutor John Pappas.

Testimony will resume Tuesday morning. On Tuesday afternoon the jury will visit the South Boston condo building.
