Man dead after ‘multiple’ officers fired firearms during encounter at home in New Hampshire

Authorities have launched an investigation into a shooting involving officers in Manchester, New Hampshire, that killed a man early Friday morning.

Officers responding to a 911 call for a report of a person armed with a firearm at 1143 Mammoth Road just before 3:30 a.m. met the person in question outside a home in an apartment complex and eventually opened fire, according to New Hampshire Attorney- General John M. Formella.

“Several Manchester police officers eventually fired their firearms,” ​​Formella’s office said in a statement. “Life-saving measures were attempted, but the armed resident was shot and died.”

The person’s identity has not been made public. An autopsy is scheduled for later today.

Video from the scene showed much of the complex cordoned off with yellow police tape, a slew of evidence markers scattered across the ground, and several officers scouring the grounds.

No officers or other residents were injured in the incident and authorities say there is no danger to the public.

“According to protocol, the names of the officers involved in the incident are withheld pending the conclusion of formal interviews,” Formella’s office added. “The first responding officers had body-worn cameras.”

The exact circumstances surrounding this incident are still being investigated. Additional details are expected to be released after the autopsy is complete

The shooting involving officers is the third in Manchester in the past year.
