Family of man shot by police in Bath requests footage of event


The family of a man who was shot and killed by police officers after he allegedly lunged at them with a knife is looking for closure, reports the Union Leader.

Hagen Esty-Lennon, 41 years old, was killed on July 6 after police say he crashed his SUV into a boulder on the north end of the closed Bath Bridge over the Wild Ammonoosuc River.

The report continues with an account of him staggering away from the wreck, refusing to drop a knife when commanded by police, and making a sudden move towards the officers before being shot six times.

Peter McGrath, the lawyer of Esty-Lennon's mother, Donna Esty, has asked the New Hampshire Attorney General and the Haverhill Police Department to make the video available.

McGrath requested that all materials related to the investigation be made available to him. He filed a plan to perform his own investigation of the case on July 21.

Esty does not know why Esty-Lennon was in Bath that day. McGrath has noted the 12-hour delay in notifying Esty that her son was dead.

Esty described her son as someone who enjoyed being outdoors, cooking and being with friends.
