SEABROOK, N.H. (CBS) – A shooting near at a Seabrook, New Hampshire home left one man dead and another in critical condition, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office.
Monday around 9 a.m., police officers responded to a home on Boynton Lane and found one man dead in the driveway. A second man was seriously injured and another man had reportedly run from the scene.
Less than a mile away, more officers gathered at a shopping plaza on Lafayette Road to search for the third man. Customers were asked to remain inside stores while officers searched.
Initially, Hampton Police said a person was taken in custody. Assistant Attorney General Ben Agati later said that the third person was located, but no one has been charged or is in custody.
“We don’t believe there’s any sort of danger to the public. These three individuals did know each other. So there’s no indication there was a stranger involved with another group of people,” Agati said. “I think we can say that we’ve certainly identified everybody who was involved and that includes the individual doing the shooting.”
Police found a weapon they believe was used during the violent incident. It is not clear how many shots were fired.
Agati said more information is expected on Tuesday after an autopsy has been performed.
No names or ages have been released, and investigators could not say how the people involved knew each other or what the motive was.
“I heard two gunshots within a couple of seconds of each other and it was really close, I’m assuming it was out front,” said Christian O’Brien, who was nearby.
“There was an active shooter and I had to run out of the house to a parking lot,” said neighbor Anna Desmaris. “It was very stressful but I’m glad I got out.”
Allison L’heureux was in Market Basket Monday morning when she heard an announcement over the speakers asking customers to remain inside.
“At that point, I had no idea what was going on, if there was a fire, if we were going out the back door,” she said. “I didn’t know what to do, I started crying. I heard ‘shooter’ and I didn’t know if they were in the store, if I should be hiding. I didn’t know what to do. The employees did a great job of keeping everyone calm.”
