MANCHESTER, NH – A city man is in custody following a reported assault and shooting incident on Spruce Street on two occasions this week.

A woman reported that a man she knew had confronted her outside the building with a firearm and had shot several rounds into her unoccupied vehicle. The woman was not hurt, and the man drove away after the shooting. A young child was asleep inside the apartment, not far from where the shooting occurred.  

Police were able to identify the man as Codarrel Kirk, 21, of Manchester. It was also determined that Kirk had threatened and assaulted the same woman earlier in the week. 

On Thursday afternoon, Manchester Police located Kirk at a Country Club Drive address and took him into custody without incident.

Kirk was charged with criminal threatening, simple assault, first-degree assault, reckless conduct, criminal mischief, and endangering the welfare of a child. Kirk is scheduled for arraignment March 31 in Hillsborough County Superior  Court-North.
