·1 min read

The New Hampshire’s Attorney General’s Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting that left one dead Sunday morning in downtown Manchester.

According to authorities, just before 1 a.m. officers responded to reports of a domestic violence assault in the parking lot near Rite Aid on Mammoth Road.

Manchester Police were first on the scene when they noticed an adult female walking away from a parked vehicle with injuries. An armed man was still in the vehicle and refused to get out, police said.

After nearly 2 hours of a standoff, police shot and killed 33-year-old Adnan Husejnovic of Manchester.

No one else was hurt during the incident.

Attorney General John Formella said the initial investigation shows four Manchester police officers fired their guns during the incident. Two New Hampshire State Police troopers also discharged their weapons.

Formella said the responding officers were wearing body cameras and investigators will review whether the cameras, along with cruiser cameras, recorded the incident.

Pursuant to protocol, the names of the officers involved in the incident are being withheld pending the conclusion of a formal interview.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning to determine Husejnovic’s cause and manner of death.

This remains an active investigation.
