UPDATE: 2 men in jail after 2 shot in Manchester early Saturday morning
MANCHESTER— Two men have been arrested for the shooting of two people in Manchester early Saturday morning.
Officers responded around 2:20 a.m. to the area of 131 Amory St. to report of gun shots fired. Upon arrival, they found firefighters treating one man that had sustained multiple gun wounds.
The victim, Jarrod Ean-Dixon, 36 of Concord, was transported to the hospital and remains in stable but critical condition.
The resulting investigation revealed that parties allegedly involved in the shooting of Ean-Dixon had fled in a vehicle.
Officers searched the surrounding neighborhoods and located a vehicle that matched the description of the one that had fled.
The vehicle was stopped and the occupants were identified as, Michael Sirois, 22 of Chester, Jason Gerry, 21 of Sandown, and Kasondra Williams, 20 of Raymond.
Williams showed that she had a gun shot wound to her leg as she exited the vehicle and was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. She was later released with non-life threatening injuries.
The investigation found that Sirois, Gerry, Williams and others had been socializing at the residence of 131 Amory St., when an argument broke out between Sirois, Gerry, and Ean-Dixon over a flag that was displayed at the residence, a flag that Sirois found offensive.
Sirois, Gerry and Williams then left the residence as a result of the argument. However, due to car trouble, Sirois, Gerry, and Williams found themselves back in front of the residence where Sirois and Gerry then engaged in a physical altercation with Ean-Dixon. The shootings of Ean-Dixon and Williams then happened.
Sirois was arrested and charged with first degree assault with a deadly weapon for the shooting of Ean-Dixon and second degree assault with a deadly weapon for the shooting of Williams.
Sirois is being held at Hillsborough County House of Corrections on $100,000 cash or surety bail, and is expected to be arraigned on Nov. 7.
Jason Gerry was also arrested and charged with second degree assault for his actions during the physical altercation with Ean-Dixon. Additionally, as the driver of the above vehicle at the time of the stop, Gerry was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving without giving proof, and operating after suspension.
Gerry is being held at Hillsborough County House of Corrections on $6,000 cash or surety bail, and is also expected to be arraigned on Nov. 7.
The investigation into the above matter continues; however, there is no ongoing threat to public safety. If you have any information pertaining to this incident, please contact the Manchester Police Detective Unit at 603-792-5500 or Manchester Police Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
