MANCHESTER — Responding to an assault report Thursday, Manchester police, fire, and AMR ambulance services discovered a man with injuries on Lowell Street near Maple Street.
The emergency call escalated en route, prompting the addition of a fire engine and paramedic team after the victim was found unresponsive.
Upon arrival, first responders administered CPR and rushed the man to Elliot Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
New Hampshire Attorney General John M. Formella and Manchester Police Chief Allen D.
