Autopsy results not yet available from Nashua shooting
Friday afternoon, police say Carlos Alago-Collazo, 34, shot the mother of his two children, Mireily Rodriguez-Torres, 32, of Nashua, and Andres Garcia, 35, of Hudson.
Garcia died from his injuries, and Rodriguez-Torres survived and was listed Tuesday in serious condition at a Boston hospital.
“She is expected to survive,” Jeffery A. Strelzin, senior assistant attorney general, said Tuesday.
Rodriguez-Torres and Garcia were shot multiple times with a handgun while outside 14 Merrimack St. The shooter, identified by police as Alago-Collazo, later shot himself in the head while in a parked car in Lawrence, Mass., according to police.
Strelzin said autopsies on Garcia and Alago-Collazo are being conducted by the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. He said the results were not available Tuesday.
“This is treated the same as any homicide investigation,” said Strelzin, who said authorities are trying to determine what prompted the shooting.
“I do have some theories,” said Strelzin, who said the investigation is still in the early stages.
While Strelzin would not comment on whether the shooting was a drive-by shooting or whether any altercation or disturbance took place prior to the incident, he classified the crime as a domestic violence situation.
“But I wouldn't put a label on this,” he said.
Strelzin said witnesses at the scene are cooperating, and police are continuing to speak with everyone involved.
Authorities said previously that Alago-Collazo and Rodriguez-Torres “had been involved in a long-term relationship and had two children together,” said a statement from the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office.
Police in Lawrence, Mass., as well as the Nashua Police Department, New Hampshire Attorney General's Office and the Essex District Attorney's Office are working jointly on the case.
