PAUL DIMICK 

MANCHESTER — Rewards totaling $5,000 are being offered for information leading to the capture and arrest of a city man wanted for second-degree murder.

Manchester police initially announced a $2,500 reward through the Crimeline for assistance in apprehending Paul Dimick, who is wanted for the shooting death last Friday of Justin Lee on Hanover Street.

That reward was doubled Tuesday afternoon by Alderman At-Large and local restauranteur Joe Kelly Levsasseur, who said he will personally match the reward being offered, bringing the total to $5,000.

Dimick, 26, remained at large Tuesday, four days after the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office issued a warrant for his arrest.

Lee, 32, was shot about 11 a.m. Friday in an apartment building at 357 Hanover St. He was taken to Elliot Hospital and died later that day.

An autopsy performed Saturday determined Lee died of a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Assistant Attorney General John J. Kennedy said this week police are searching “around the clock” for Dimick, who has a long criminal history that includes an alleged stabbing, a violent assault and a criminal mischief charge for kicking out the rear window of a police cruiser.

Dimick is described as 5’6” tall with blond hair, blue eyes and tattoos on his arms and chest.

Tipsters can remain anonymous and still be eligible for the cash reward. Call the Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or the Detective Unit at 792-5500 with any information related to the case.

The $2,500 Crimeline reward will be paid if Dimick is successfully convicted, Levasseur’s $2,500 match will be paid to any individual whose tip leads to Dimick’s apprehension, police said.
