This is in a small town very near to me.
"GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) — A man opened fire on police during a drug bust Thursday night, killing a New Hampshire police chief just days from retirement and injuring four officers from other departments. Early Friday, the shooter remained holed up in the home with a woman, police said."
Listening to a local online radio/dispatch archive, it sounds as if at least 6 officers were on initial approach to the house to search a search warrant when someone inside opened up on them with a high-powered semi-auto weapon. Three officers dropped almost immediately and two more were brought down while scrambling for cover; I could hear the repeated pops from the continuing shots as the survivors were desperately calling for aid.
The story is still happening as I type; the house is currently surrounded by SWAT teams and there is active negotiation with a male and female inside (approx 5AM EDT).
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Police Chief Michael Maloney and the 4 detectives who were injured. Chief Maloney was 8 days from retirement.
