MANCHESTER, N.H. — Police in New Hampshire say a woman is in critical condition after being shot several times in the torso and a man has been charged with attempted murder and reckless conduct.
Police say the Manchester shooting does not appear to be a random act of violence; the man and woman know each other. They released no further information on what might have caused the shooting.
They arrested 25-year-old Jeremey Sterling, of Waterboro, Maine, in a parking lot shortly after the 2:45 p.m. shooting Thursday. Police also interviewed nearby residents who discovered bullet holes in their apartments.
The name of the 39-year-old woman hasn’t been released.
Sterling has been jailed and was scheduled to be arraigned Friday. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
This story has been corrected to show that Sterling is from Waterboro, Maine, not Waterloo.
