CLAREMONT, N.H. (WCAX) - A Claremont man arrested in connection with a downtown shooting is due in court Thursday to answer to charges of attempted murder.

Claremont Police arrested Nathan Pillsbury, 35, Wednesday on charges including attempted murder and armed robbery. They say officers responded to Main and Elm Street around 3 a.m. Monday for a report of shots fired. Officers found evidence of the shooting but say the victim and suspect had left the scene.

Working with the U.S. Marshal’s Service and New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office Drug Task Force, police picked up Pillsbury, who they say was also wanted on an outstanding federal parole violation warrant.

Pillsbury is due to be arraigned Thursday.

Police say the investigation into the shooting continues and they are asking the public to come forward with tips.
