CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire law enforcement officials say the man shot dead by police in Walpole was wanted for allegedly violating his parole for a 1994 kidnapping conviction.
Larry Bohannon of Grafton was killed Friday after allegedly robbing a Bellows Falls, Vt., shop at gunpoint and leading police on a car chase into Walpole.
The 51-year-old Bohannon died from gunshot wounds to the head, chest, and abdomen.
It's unknown if Bohannon fired at police before he was killed.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Janice Rundles tells the Eagle Times Bohannon had at least two kidnapping convictions. He was on parole in New Hampshire following a 1994 conviction for reportedly kidnapping a Claremont man.
Police in Keene said Bohannon is being looked at for other robberies that have gone unsolved in the area.
