The state Attorney General’s Office identified the man as David Donovan, 35. Donovan lived at 1 Frances Court, according to court documents.
Three other people were injured before police arrived, according to a statement from the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office. One person is hospitalized in stable condition, the AG’s Office said. No officers were injured.
The shooting occurred around 10 p.m. in a residential area behind the Meredith Village Cemetery and less than one-tenth of a mile from the Meredith Police Station.
