At approximately 12:20 A.M. on Sunday, June 19, 2022, a 911 call was made upon which law enforcement officers responded to a report of a domestic violence assault in a parking lot near Rite Aid at 270 Mammoth Road in Manchester.
Manchester Police officers were the first to arrive on scene and were directed to a gray Toyota RAV4 parked in a parking lot. An adult female was located walking away from the vehicle with injuries, and police began a dialogue with an armed adult male subject who was still in the car and who refused to submit to arrest. A standoff ensued over an hour and a half. At approximately 2:05 A.M. the adult male, Adnan Husejnovic (age 33) of Manchester was shot.
Initial information indicates that six officers discharged their weapons during the incident; four Manchester Police officers, and two New Hampshire state troopers. An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 9:00 A.M. at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner’s office to determine Mr. Husejnovic’s cause and manner of death.
No law enforcement officers or other private citizens were physically injured during the shooting incident. Pursuant to protocol, the names of the officers involved in the incident are being withheld pending the conclusion of a formal interview. The initial responding officers did have body cameras. Investigators will be reviewing whether those cameras, as well as cruiser cameras or other video or audio, recorded any portion of the incident.
Additional information is not anticipated until after the autopsy results are known tomorrow.
