    bad ju-jus going on a couple towns over tonight.... friends wife is ER nurse there, 5 officers shot while serving warrant... chief of police (one week away from retirement) is one of them.... one officer confirmed dead.

    story is developing, but the perp. is apparently an uber buff body builder type pumped up on roids with an "assault style" rifle....

    busted last summer for illegal steroids....

    police serving warrant for confiscation of firearms following some kind of domestic violence (usually the result of a restraining order).

    guy appears to be holed up with his ex-squeeze as his hostage....

    say a prayer for the NH police tonight....

    I remember being told that most warrants involving firearms or drugs in my large city are typically conducted by SWAT teams, and this is the reason.


    ETA: I see a policy change coming for this department.

    First off why wait until you know the person is home to do a search, especially if you know its for Rx and firearms? 6 pm......seriously!? This just stinks of wanting a confrontation! Kinda also reminds me of the POs in altercations from no-knock warrants. Something stinketh in Denmark!

    This warrant was being served for a drug investigation. I believe that he has some sort of AR15 or AK considering what he did.

    Chief Michael Maloney, who served on the Greenland, NH Police Department for 12 years and was suppose to retire in one week was shot and killed during this shootout.

    Det. Gregory Turner, who is a six-year veteran of the Dover Police Department, was treated and released after gunshot wound to shoulder.

    Det. Eric Kulberg, of the University of New Hampshire police, was treated and released after a gunshot wound to the arm.

    Det. Scott Kukesh, who is a 10-year veteran with the Newmarket Police Department, was in the intensive care unit with a bullet wound to the chest. He was waiting for surgery.

    Det. Jeremiah Murphya, who is a seven-year veteran of the Rochester Police Department, was in the intensive care unit after surgery for a gunshot wound to chest.

    There were reporters asking the AG a few times if it was an automatic weapon that was used. I'm assuming that it was just a semi auto of some sort. I do hope that the officers involved at least had their long guns with them, if not then there is a gap in their tactics.

    Sounds like the NH LEOs were not expecting any resistance, and what they found out is that the sturmgewehr is the great equalizer. Especially against service side-arms.

    Hindsight being 20-20, a swat team would have been more appropriate.

    No knock warrants are not always foolproof either.

    Teargas works like a charm though.

    Sorry to hear about the fallen LEO.

    With a LEO down, this perp will probably come out shooting ala suicide by cop. Or else he will finish it himself.

    Haven't seen anything about them just using their sidearms

    Not all officers are issued long arms. In my area, only a small percentage of them actually are.

    Doesn't mean they couldn't get some. Rochester has them at least.

    I'm not saying they couldn't, and I'm not saying they didn't have them. I'm just saying that it is a safer assumption to say that they didn't have long arms than to say they did.....but either way, you know what assumptions make out of you and me.

    My prayers to the fallen and injured. Let's all hope this ends very soon without any further bloodshed.

    This is the reason why a lot of departments send the SWAT team, even when some people might get butthurt about it. "Well, the suspect feels a lot better that we sent regular officers" is a dang poor thing to tell the widow of a dead cop. It comes down to which choice will send the most people home alive at night. Send regular officers, some may get shot and die. Send SWAT, the will probably live. That's why SWAT gets sent. They die less often.

    Tragic, but not gun-related in the THR sense. And, THR is not a newspaper to publicize events of this sort. It's not our mission.
