UPDATE: NH AG's office confirms incident in Merrimack is officer-involved shooting
MERRIMACK - The N.H. Attorney General's office is investigating an officer-involved shooting.
A Merrimack police officer fired his weapon, and an adult man was taken to an area hospital, they said.
It's still unclear what led up to the shooting, but neighbors say they heard one shot, then several quick shots.
The N.H. State Police Major Crime Unit is on scene along with local police and the sheriff's department.
Joppa extension has been shut down all afternoon.
One neighbor said this kind of police activity on this part of the street is not surprising.
"I believe there was a young man who had had incidents with the police regarding weapons," Steven Dembow said. "And the possibility of certain weapons may have been stolen. This was quite some years ago."
We do not know the identity or the condition of the man who was shot, but it appears the officer was not hurt.
NH1 News' Siobhan Lopez in on the scene and will have more details beginning at 5 p.m. on NH1 News on WBIN-TV.
