NASHUA, N.H (WHDH) - Police shot and killed a man in Nashua, N.H. Sunday night.

New Hampshire Attorney General John Fomella’s office said Pelham police first encountered the armed individual leaving his home earlier in the evening before Nashua police responded to Lowes, where they found the man outside in the parking lot, armed with a handgun.

The Attorney General’s office said two Nashua police officers fired less lethal weapons at the man and one officer fired his gun. Police delivered medical aid, but the man died.

Investigators are not naming the man until after an autopsy is conducted Monday.

No police officers were hurt during the incident.

“It’s a little scary. It’s scary to know that we’re walking around out here and you just don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know who you’re going to encounter and, unfortunately, what’s going through their mind,” said Melissa Reid, who walks in the area.

This is the second fatal encounter this year between Nashua police and a man with a gun. In both cases there was use of both lethal and non-lethal force.
