Man shot in confrontation with police in New Hampshire

HOPKINTON, N.H. (AP) — A Vermont man shot in a confrontation with police on a New Hampshire interstate has been charged with driving a stolen car and disobeying an officer.

New Hampshire State Police say 31-year-old Bryan Evans, of Quechee, Vermont, was taken to a hospital after the shooting that caused the shutdown of part of I-89 Friday evening. Police say the incident unfolded when a New Hampshire trooper stopped the allegedly stolen vehicle around 7 p.m. No officers were injured in the shooting.

Evans remains in a hospital which authorities did not name.

Police said Thursday that charges against Evans including receiving stolen property, unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle and disobeying an officer have been filed with the Merrimack County Superior Court. Additional charges may be forthcoming.
