BRENTWOOD, N.H. (CBS/AP) — A police officer was involved in a shooting at a home in New Hampshire just before a fire and explosion destroyed the home Monday afternoon, authorities said.
The shooting and explosion happened in a suburban duplex home in a 55-and-up community on Mill Pond Road in Brentwood shortly after 4 p.m.
State police told numerous media outlets that the shooting involved a police officer. Brentwood Selectman Ken Christiansen told WBZ-TV that a police officer was injured.
Debra Vasapolli, director of public relations at Exeter Hospital, said that one person was taken to the hospital but said that person was not the victim of a gunshot wound. She declined to provide more details.
After the blaze started around 4 p.m., firefighters were kept away from the scene. Within minutes of the explosion, the house was engulfed in flames as black smoke billowed over the neighborhood.
