MANCHESTER, NH – A man who allegedly threatened his girlfriend via text message then showed up to her apartment just after she heard gunfire outside was arrested the next day at a local restaurant, charged with criminal threatening and witness tampering.
Multiple police units responded to a shots fired call at a residence on Huse Road on April 12, at approximately 10:40 p.m. Officer Matthew Mara spoke with a 24-year-old woman who told police her ex-boyfriend, Jeremy Luna, 19, no fixed address, had stopped at her apartment complex prior to a gunshot being fired just outside.
Luna allegedly threatened the woman via text message because she refused to speak with him in person. Luna allegedly threatened to “shoot her place up” if she didn’t see him. The woman told police she felt threatened by his text message, so she refused to open the apartment door when Luna showed up uninvited.
The woman told police she believed Luna engaged in an altercation with an unknown person outside of the apartment complex prior to hearing the gunshot. She did not see who fired the gun, but confirmed a bullet went through the windshield of her vehicle, which was parked outside of her apartment complex.
Luna was arrested on April 13 at 4:30 p.m. by members of the Special Enforcement Division. Luna was located at Don Quijote Restaurant, 362 Union St. Luna was not in possession of a firearm when he was arrested. He was charged with domestic criminal threatening and witness tampering. He was charged with witness tampering for texting a gun emoji to the woman with a message pleading with her not to contact police about the earlier incident.
Luna will appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on April 15. The criminal mischief to her vehicle (gunshot) is still under investigation, so no one has been formally charged at this time.
