Parents of man shot by officers in Bath hire investigative attorney

The Associated Press

HAVERHILL (AP) — The family of a New Hampshire man who was fatally shot by two Haverhill officers earlier this month has hired an attorney who plans to investigate the incident.

The Caledonian Record reports Haverhill Town Manager Glenn English confirmed this week that attorney Peter McGrath of Concord has contacted the Haverhill Police Department for materials related to the case, including video footage from police body cameras.

English says the town denied the request and won't release anything until the state investigation is complete.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell said her agency's report could be issued in about a week.

McGrath represents the mother of 42-year-old Hagan Etsy-Lennon of Canterbury. Etsy-Lennon was shot six times in Bath on July 6 after authorities said he lunged at two police officers with a knife.
