UPDATED: Rochester man killed Sunday identified; death ruled homicide

ROCHESTER No character style: — State and local officials continue to investigate what led to the death of a 37-year-old man who was shot in the chest on Sylvain Street Sunday night.

Dr. Jennie Duval, the state’s deputy chief medical examiner, determined Richard Dumont, 37, of Rochester, died of a gunshot wound to the chest and “the manner of death is homicide,” according to a release by the state Attorney General’s Office and Rochester Police Department.

Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded to the intersection of Washington and Sylvain streets at 10:06 p.m. after they received a report of an altercation. When officers arrived, they found Dumont and another man near a vehicle, where the shooting occurred.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin, who is chief of the state’s homicide unit, said Dumont had been shot once. He would not say whether investigators determined how many shots were fired.

Strelzin said he would not release the identity of the second man or comment whether he was a friend or co-worker of Dumont. He would not disclose what type of firearm was used or discuss what led up to the incident. “We are not releasing these details yet as the investigation is ongoing,” Strelzin said.

 

According to a previous release, Dumont, who knew the second man, was treated at the scene before being sent to the hospital, where he eventuallydied.

No charges have been filed.

ROCHESTER – Members of the N.H. Attorney General's Office and local police began piecing together what led to the death of a 37-year-old man during an incident outside a Sylvain Street home Sunday night.


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.

"That is not something I can comment on at this time," Strelzin said, adding members of the Attorney General's Office and Rochester police are investigating the incident.


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.
