‘Bomb’ written on wall of NH hotel prompts investigation

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - Authorities are investigating after the word “bomb” was found written on the wall of a hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire, Thursday morning.

Employees and 49 guests temporarily evacuated the Hilton Garden, located at 101 South Commercial St., after an unknown person set off the hotel’s fire alarm, police said.

One of the employees reportedly noticed the word “bomb” written in pencil on the southeast stairwell after the fire department cleared the initial alarm and allowed them back inside.

The hotel was evacuated a second time as an officer and his K9 partner checked the building for any potential threat.

All guests and employees were allowed back inside once the threat was deemed non-credible.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Manchester police at 603-792-5500.
