A five-hour standoff in Ossipee on Thursday ended with a man being shot by police.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's office says police officers were attempting to serve legal documents and to arrest 53-year-old John Swanson at his home in Ossipee.

According to the AG, Swanson refused to come out of his home. He was later shot during a confrontation with police and is currently receiving medical treatment.

The AG says the name of the officer or officers involved in the shooting will be withheld until formal interviews have been conducted.
