The police officer was the only man while the doctor and lawyer were ladies.
Peter on a second glance would also read the police officer’s name on his name tag as “John”.
Peter’s wife was saying, “No John! Don’t do it!” to the police officer and the police officer shot her anyway.

I guess the police officer was responsible for the shooting. He most likely was the only person carrying a gun.
