AP Source: Chief killed, 4 officers injured in shooting in small NH town during drug bust
GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) ' An official with knowledge of the investigation says Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney was the officer killed during a drug bust-turned-shootout in New Hampshire that also left four other officers wounded.
The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak ahead of the official release of the identities of those involved.
The incident started around 6 p.m. Thursday and the suspect remains barricaded in a home with a woman.
Maloney was due to retire in less than two weeks. He is married and has children. In addition to Maloney, the department has just six officers.
