UPDATE: Nashua man facing felony charges in Salem officer-involved shooting


SALEM - Salem Police arrested Raymond Shawdee, 31, of Nashua following an officer-involved shooting Tuesday morning.

Police were called to Phantom Crossfit at 286 North Broadway when a Liberty Utilities employee reported one of their workers felt threatened by a man with a gun.

Liberty workers were there to turn the power off, when they say a man with a gun told them he would "do whatever it takes to keep the power on."

Raymond Shawdee, 31, of Nashua is charged with criminal threatening and reckless conduct.

When police arrived, they saw Shawdee exit the building and offered several commands for him to stop walking.

According to police, he continued walking to his car and at one point turned around quickly to face the officer and made a "gun gesture" with his hands.

A Salem Police officer fired one shot but missed.

Shawdee was taken into custody without incident.

According to police, Shawdee was never in possession of a gun, nor was he the man who had the encounter with the utility workers. Police said that man is the owner of Phantom Crossfit.

According to his LinkedIn page, Chris Bright owns Phantom Crossfit.

Police said Bright exited the building and followed all of their commands.

He is not currently facing any charges.
