GOFFSTOWN — An unnamed juvenile has been arrested and charged with murder in Sunday's shooting death in Goffstown of Ian Jewell, 18, an honor student at Manchester Memorial High School.

Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald, New Hampshire State Police Col. Christopher J. Wagner, and Goffstown Police Chief Robert Browne announced in a news release that a juvenile — whose name is not being released due to his age — was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday.

The youth “knowingly causing Jewell's death with a deadly weapon in the commission of a robbery,” the news release states.

There is an alternative count of second-degree murder for “recklessly causing Mr. Jewell's death, under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life, by shooting him.”

Around 4:20 p.m. on Sunday, Goffstown police responded to a reported shooting in the parking lot of the Ace Hardware Store at 5 Depot Street.

Jewell — an honor student at Manchester Memorial High School, athlete and brother of a cancer patient — died later at a local hospital, according to a statement released by MacDonald and Goffstown police.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jennie V. Duval determined Jewell died from a single gunshot wound to the chest. His death was ruled a homicide.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact New Hampshire State Police Sgt. Matthew Koehler at 223-8890.
