Manchester police say man shot in leg on Lowell Street
Sgt. Jamie Gallant confirmed police were investigating a shooting in the vicinity of 234 Lowell St., near the N&N Express Convenience Store at 230 Lowell St., across from Central High School. Eight police cruisers were seen in the vicinity around 6:50 p.m. Sunday, while a ring of yellow police tape closed off a one-block section of Lowell Street.
Police appeared to be focused on two homes adjacent to Gaby’s Kitchen and Lounge at the corner of Maple and Lowell streets. Several officers could be seen talking to four individuals, as children ran outside in shorts and bathing suits.
Neighbors said a man had suffered a gunshot wound to a leg. Police said the victim was taken to Elliot Hospital, but would not comment on the severity of the injury.
Police said they did not have a suspect in custody, but indicated there was no threat to the public at large Sunday night.
One neighbor said she heard the sound of gunfire shortly after 6 p.m.
"I had just been through there with my kids like 20 minutes before," said Melissa Crane of East High Street, who said she lived around the corner from where the shooting occurred. "I heard a ‘pop pop’, then a car leaving fast. There was a guy on the street, and someone came out and put a towel around his leg. I did hear a loud argument going on near that area right before the ‘pop pop’, a lot of yelling, but I don’t know if that was part of it."
"I didn’t see it, but I came out after I heard people outside," said Roddy Dumont, who lives near N & N Express. "There’s been some police activity in this neighborhood the last few days. I don’t know what’s happening to it."
Crane said she didn’t know the identity of the victim, but believed some neighbors knew him.
"I think he’s familiar to this street," Crane said.
