MERRIMACK - A man who was shot by police responding to a domestic disturbance on Thursday has died.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's office said Saturday that Harrison Lambert died on Friday night.

Attorney General Joseph A. Foster said in a release that Lambert, 23, was shot five times by Merrimack police Thursday outside his home at 8 Joppa Rd. Police received a call about a man threatening his father with a knife.

Lambert was armed with a knife when police responding to the call opened fire during an altercation in the driveway, investigators said.

The release, which included autopsy results, did not elaborate on the shooting beyond saying Lambert was armed with a knife.

Lambert was flown to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where he died of his injuries Friday night, according to the release. The Massachusetts Medical Examiner's office conducted an autopsy and ruled the death a homicide.

The investigation remained ongoing Saturday, the release said.
