Candia police say they received a 911 call from someone who said they were making calls for the Clinton presidential campaign and had called a home on Crittle Hill Road, hearing gunshots and what appeared to be arguing in the background.

Law enforcement arrived from the Candia, Deerfield and Auburn police, along with state police and the Rockingham County Sheriff's office.

Living in the home were an elderly couple.

Candia Police Chief Mike McGillen finally got the bottom of the incident.

"Come to find out they were watching Law & Order, and it's possible that the person on the phone heard that in the background," McGillen said. "Gunshots, people screaming. You know, typical crime show activity."

The Clinton campaign declined to comment on the specific incident.
