THORNTON, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was shot by a Thornton police officer on Monday died at the scene.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ethan Freeman died of his injuries on Monday.

The New Hampshire attorney general’s office says an autopsy performed Tuesday showed that Freeman died of two gunshot wounds to the chest.

No officers or other citizens were injured.

The office says the name of the police officer involved is being withheld pending the conclusion of a formal interview.

It says there have been three officer-involved shootings in New Hampshire this year, including this latest one.
