MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - A fatal shooting in Manchester, New Hampshire is under investigation after two police cruisers collided while responding to a call for shots fired Monday evening, authorities said.

Officers responding to the area of Notre Dame Avenue around 6:30 p.m. crashed their cruisers into one another, according to Manchester police.

The officers were taken to Elliot Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Additional officers soon arrived to the scene and found 24-year-old Dillon Schultz suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald said.
