1 dead, 2 barricaded amid standoff at New Hampshire hotel

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s attorney general’s office says a man has been killed in an officer-involved shooting with police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents at a hotel. Two people remain barricaded in a first-floor room.

Assistant Attorney General Ben Agati identified the man killed as 51-year-old Stephen Marshall, of Manchester, in a news conference early Thursday.

Agati says the shooting happened about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Quality Inn in Manchester, near Interstate 293 in a busy area that includes a shopping mall.

Agati says Marshall had a gun in his hand and “engaged” with DEA agents and police. Marshall was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police had evacuated the hotel and a nearby restaurant.

Officials say there is still an active standoff going on between officers and the two people barricaded in the hotel room as of Thursday morning.


This story has been corrected to show that we improperly identified the federal law enforcement agency that responded to the shooting. It is the Drug Enforcement Administration, not the Drug Enforcement Agency.
