Friend says Manchester murder victim was checking lasers
Friends and family members Tuesday were struggling to understand why Gagnon, 22, a 2009 Manchester High School West graduate, was killed.
Manchester police said they were called to the Black Acres area just after 11 p.m. Sunday on reports of a group of youth running in camouflage gear and pointing lasers, followed by a report of possible gunshots.
Gagnon died of a single stab wound to his chest, according to the state Attorney General's Office. The death is classified as a homicide.
"It's an open and on-going investigation," Hinckley said.
Said the victim's mother: "I'm learning more on Facebook than I'm learning from police."
"He was just a baby, for God's sake," his mother said.
He loved tinkering with cars and racing mud trucks, she said.
On Monday night, friends and family assembled a 100-vehicle procession that drove from South Willow Street to the West Side as a memorial to Chris, said his mother.
"The answer will help because that kid will get what he deserves and go to jail," Hill said.
