UPDATED: Rochester man killed Sunday identified; death ruled homicide
Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded to the intersection of Washington Street - Route 202 – and Sylvain Street around 10:06 p.m. after they received a report of an altercation. When officers arrived at the scene, they found two men, including one who had been shot, according to a release by the Attorney General's Office and Rochester Police Department.
The injured man - who was identified as Richard Dumont, 37, of Rochester – was treated at the scene before being sent to the hospital, where he eventually succumbed to his injuries, according to the release.
Heather Hall, who lives along Sylvain Street, said she was surprised to find out about the incident as it occurred in a quiet neighborhood near the Maple Street School.
Hall said her 8-year-old daughter woke up and came to her after she heard "two loud noises."
"She woke me up at 10 (p.m.) or so and said the street was full of police cars," Hall said, adding the incident occurred within sight of her home.
"It was just right there in the road," Hall said, adding police marked the location of the car involved in the shooting with bright orange spray paint, which remains at the end of the road.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin, chief of the state's homicide unit, would not comment whether investigators determined how, when or where the incident began. He would not say whether there are any indication drugs or alcohol were involved in the dispute.
The identity of the second man was not released and no charges have been filed.
"Although the investigation is still in its early stages, the police have determined that the shooting did not involve strangers and that both people involved in the incident have been identified," according to a release.
When asked if the second man is a person of interest or a witness, Strelzin answered, "He is a participant in the events."
Strelzin said investigators have not released what type of weapon was involved in the incident. He also would not say whether or not both men were armed.
Rochester police referred inquiries to the N.H. Attorney General's Office, according to Deputy Police Chief Scott Dumas.
The N.H. Chief Medical Examiner's Office hopes to determine the cause and manner of Dupont's death during an autopsy, which is scheduled for Tuesday, according to the release.
