UPDATE: Witness says he couldn't save Manchester shooting victim

MANCHESTER – One man has died after being shot three times in the chest during the early morning shooting on Amherst Street that had police, the NH Attorney General's Office and a homicide team on the scene.

David Grover witnessed it all and tried to save the victim.

Grover said he heard gunshots and saw the alleged shooter, who he was able to quickly disarm, before running to help the victim.

“I just watched the life disappear from his face and he was no longer," he said. "I didn’t even have to check a pulse, I didn’t have to try CPR."

The shooting happened on the second floor of the building where witnesses also reported hearing the alleged shooter tell the building manager he had just shot and killed a person.

When Grover walked into the room where police found the victim on the floor, he was shocked at what he saw.

"There was flesh and pieces of people against the wall where the bullets had actually struck the wall. And they ended up going through the wall and into the apartment next door,” Grover said.

Despite the man bleeding profusely, Grover said he attempted to perform CPR on the man.

Police have the alleged shooter in custody and have not yet released the identity of the victim pending an autopsy.
