NH AG: Death related to Merrimack officer-involved shooting justified
MERRIMACK - Thursday the NH Attorney General's Office released the report regarding the death of Harrison Lambert, who was killed by Merrimack police in September.
According to the report, Harrison's father, Gregory, called police when Harrison threatened him and his wife in their home with a knife.
Lambert, who had a lengthy criminal history, had several run-ins with police. According to a 2013 Merrimack Patch article, Lambert was arrested for allegedly threatening neighbors with a knife and spitting at police.
When officers arrived, Harrison was in his driveway wielding a knife.
After many verbals commands to drop the knife, Harrison refused, so officers fired their weapons.
Eight shots were fired between two officers and five hit Harrison.
Harrison was flown to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital but later died on his injuries.
