Authorities searching for ‘armed and dangerous’ fugitive wanted for Manchester, NH murder

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) – Authorities are searching for a murder suspect accused of shooting and killing a 33-year-old man in Manchester, New Hampshire on Friday morning, officials said.

An arrest warrant was issued Friday night for Paul Dimick, 26, in connection with the shooting death of Justin Lee, who was found in the area 357 Hanover Street with a gunshot wound to the chest and rushed to Elliott Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.

Dimick is described as a 5-foot, 6-inch white man with blonde hair and blue eyes, who was last seen running away from the rear of 357 Hanover St.

Dimick is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

A Manchester police SWAT team searched for the suspect in the area of 332 Hanover St. Friday afternoon, which sent Central High School into “secure campus” mode until about 9 p.m., when students were released.

In a statement Friday night, Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig thanked “the men and women in the Manchester Police Department who worked throughout the day to ensure the safety of our community.”

“I’d also like to thank the teachers, administrators, staff and students at Manchester Central High School for your patience during this long afternoon and evening,” she wrote. “To the parents of CHS students and residents of the Manchester community, thank you for your understanding.”

Anyone with information about Dimick is urged to call the Manchester Police Department at 603-668-8711.
