Police Chief Killed, Multiple Officers Shot in NH

GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) — Attorney General Michael Delaney says 48-year-old Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney was the officer killed during a drug bust-turned-shootout in New Hampshire that left four other officers wounded.
Delaney confirmed early Friday that Maloney was the officer killed as authorities were conducting a drug investigation in the small town of Greenland.
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 was married and has children. In addition to Maloney, the department had just six officers.
The four injured officers were from other departments. Two are in intensive care and two have been treated and released.
