NASHUA - One person was injured in a police-involved shooting in Nashua on Tuesday night, authorities confirmed early Wednesday.

A press release issued by Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald and New Hampshire State Police Colonel Christopher J. Wagner shortly after midnight Wednesday confirmed the incident, adding that the "unfolding" investigation was being handled by "the Attorney General’s Office in conjunction with the State Police Major Crime Unit."

According to the release, one person was injured in the shooting and is being treated at a hospital. The name of the hospital was not disclosed, nor was the person's condition.

No police officer was hurt in the incident, according to the release.

Earlier information said the shooting occurred at 106 Ledge St., with officers responding to the report shortly after 10 p.m.

According to scanner reports, the man suffered several gunshot wounds.

Just before 11 p.m., Ledge Road was shut down for several blocks and a heavy police presence was reported.

Property records describe 106 Ledge St. as a multi-family residence built in 1920.
