MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester Police responded to the 300 block of Spruce Street for a gunshot call at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. Responding officers located a 43 year-old male victim, who sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his hand.

Video surveillance captured an image of two men dressed in white Ty-Vek suits entering the apartment building shortly before the shooting occurred. Detectives believe at least one of the men was armed at the time of the incident. The victim was shot, but refused to cooperate with the investigation, so it is unknown what the motive for the shooting is. This act of violence does not appear to be random and the victim was most likely targeted.

The men were also captured on video surveillance fleeing the address. Please note one of the men appeared to have sustained a serious injury to his right foot during the armed incident. It is unknown what caused the injury to the perpetrators foot. Investigators are hopeful the suspect will seek medical treatment at an area hospital.

If anyone has information regarding the armed incident, please contact the Manchester Police Detective Unit at 603-792-5500 or Manchester Police Crimeline at 603-624-4040. You may be eligible for a cash reward should your crime tip lead to the identification and arrest of the suspect(s).

Both suspects were described as black males.  The two men were considered to be “tall” and at least one had facial hair (beard). No further descriptors were provided.
