Police arrest man after shots fired in and outside Nashua residence

NASHUA - A city man fired a gun more than a half-dozen times Thursday night inside and outside a French Hill residence before he fled in his car which he then crashed into a guardrail on the F.E. Everett Turnpike, police said.

Lt. Francis Sullivan said Jeffrey Rousseau, 24, of 101 Chandler St. then fled the crash scene but was arrested just after midnight near his French Hill home.

He is charged with reckless conduct, domestic-related; three additional charges of reckless conduct; and aggravated driving while intoxicated. Additionally, state police charged him with conduct after an accident.

The incident began just before 11 p.m. Thursday when multiple gun shots were reported to police in the French Hill area of the city.

Rousseau reportedly fired a gun both inside and outside a residence, according to Sullivan. He would not disclose the number of shots fired but said there were "several" inside the residence and "more than several" were fired outside.

No one was injured in the incident although Rousseau suffered minor injuries after his car collided with a guardrail at 11:23 p.m. near Exit 2 of the F.E. Everett Turnpike.

Police said Rousseau fled the scene but was arrested without incident just after midnight near his Chandler Street home. An ambulance was called for him but emergency workers cleared him and he was not transported to a hospital.

What's next:Rousseau is being held on $25,000 cash bail pending arraignment Saturday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
