MANCHESTER — A 22-year-old local man was arrested Sunday by Manchester police in connection with a shooting that occurred earlier in the day, officials said.

The incident took place on Feb. 19 at about 1:20 p.m. when police were called to the intersection of Nashua St and Maple St after receiving reports of gunshots.

Upon arrival, officers found a female victim who had been struck in the arm by gunfire outside 37 Nashua Street.

She sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

The building also showed signs of damage, and several shell casings were discovered at the scene.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing a black car approach the address before two males exited the vehicle.
