Manchester Police were the first to arrive at the scene and walked towards a gray Toyota RAV4 in the parking lot. An injured woman was seen walking away from the vehicle as police engaged in a dialogue with an armed man who was still in the SUV and refused to submit to arrest.

A standoff ensued for over an hour and a half until around 2.05am when the man, identified as Adnan Husejnovic, 33, from Manchester, was shot dead. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Formella said six officers – four Manchester police officers and two New Hampshire state troopers – discharged their weapons during the incident. The names of the officers involved in the shooting are being held pending completion of a formal interview per protocol.

No law enforcement officers or other private citizens were physically injured in the shooting.

An autopsy is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday at the chief medical examiner’s office to determine the cause and circumstances of Husejnovic’s death.

It is not known at this time what led to the shooting. Formella said the first responders wore body cameras and investigators will look into whether those cameras, along with cruise cameras or other video or audio, recorded any part of the shooting.
