CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s attorney general is investigating the officer-involved shooting death of a suspected heroin dealer during an incident in the town of Weare, west of Manchester.
Attorney General Joseph Foster says the incident took place just after 10 p.m. Wednesday near Lanctot’s Plaza on Route 114.
Foster says several Weare police officers, two confidential informants and the target of the investigation — an adult male — were present when two Weare police officers fired on the suspect.
The man drove off in his car, followed by two Weare police cruisers. When the vehicles came to a stop, it was discovered that the suspect had been shot. He died later at a Manchester hospital.
His identification is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
