The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has released its final report on a police shooting that took place in Weare in August.

The reports says the shooting started as a domestic dispute and ended in gunfire, and clears the two officers involved in the incident.

Officials say although the suspect involved was hit three times in an exchange of gunfire with police, an autopsy determined a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest is what caused 43-year-old Jeffrey Clough-Garvin’s death.

An armed man has died and a police officer has been injured after a shooting Thursday morning in Weare. 


Officer William Lewis, 27, was among the police officers who responded to a domestic violence call on Buckley Road at 1:45 am Thursday morning. 


According to Attorney General Gordon MacDonald, when the officers arrived, they escorted an adult female from the house. The other resident, Jeffrey Clough-Garvin, 43, allegedly barricaded himself inside the house and shot Officer Lewis in the arm.
