Man, 26, fatally shot by police in Manchester, N.H., investigation underway, attorney general says

Police in Manchester, N.H., fatally shot a 26-year-old man who was allegedly armed with a gun early Friday outside a home on Mammoth Road, according to state Attorney General John M. Formella’s office.

Officers responded to a 911 call at about 3:25 a.m. for a report of an armed person at 1143 Mammoth Road and encountered the man outside the home, Formella’s office said in a statement.

“During the encounter, four Manchester Police Officers discharged their firearms and one additional Manchester Police Officer discharged a less-lethal munition,” the statement said.

The man was identified as Alex Naone of Hooksett, N.H., according to Formella’s office.


Chief Medical Examiner Jennie Duval conducted an autopsy Friday and ruled his death a homicide as the result of gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen, Formella’s office said.

No one else was injured in the shooting, Formella’s office said.

“Pursuant to protocol, the names of the officers involved in the incident are being withheld pending the conclusion of formal interviews,” officials said. “The initial responding officers did have body-worn cameras.”

Formella’s office said the “exact circumstances” of the shooting remain under investigation.

“Additional information will not be released until after the officers’ interviews are completed,” Formella’s office said.
