22-year-old man convicted of murder after fatal shooting outside Manchester, NH bar

A jury has convicted a 22-year-old man of murder after a fatal shooting in January that left one man dead outside a bar on Old Granite Street in Manchester, the Attorney General said.

John Delee, of Salem, was convicted by a Hillsborough County Superior Court jury of two counts of second-degree murder and one count of reckless conduct, Attorney General John Formella said in a statement.

Delee was found guilty of “both knowingly and recklessly causing the death” of 24-year-old Timothy Pouliot on Jan. 29 outside of a downtown Manchester bar and “under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life by shooting Mr. Pouliot with a gun,” Formella said.
