UPDATE: Reports of morning shooting, SWAT response have Manchester neighborhood on edge


MANCHESTER - Three Manchester schools were told to shelter in place Thursday morning after shots were heard through a West side neighborhood.

There were no arrests but four individuals were briefly taken into police custody for questioning.

Police cruisers, K-9 units and SWAT - including the Bear Cat - responded when the incident was first reported.

Neighbors told NH1 News they are still on edge.

“It was just a normal morning, and then my neighbor said there were shots fired,” said Jean McKinney who was outside with her dog when police arrived to the area of 90 Conant St.

Manchester police arrived on scene after getting reports of multiple shots being heard near Manchester West High School as people were just getting their morning going - some with children outside.

“I bring her inside man,” said Angel Amille when he was outside with his granddaughter. “I grabbed her, covered her, and took my keys and ran inside and told my wife to get away from the window.”

Manchester police took four people out of a Westside apartment without incident, handcuffing all four and questioning them about what happened Thursday morning.

“It’s kind of a rowdy group over there - always seems to be problems,” said McKinney.

“I never expected to see the SWAT team,” said Kelly Wedge, another neighbor.

Some weren't that surprised, however.

“Yup just never know what’s going to happen,” said Breanna Violette, who is a student at Manchester West. “Someone can barge in the doors any minute.”

There have been no arrests in this case and police are still trying to figure out what happened.

They've deemed the neighborhood safe but are unsure where the shots were fired and why.
