According to state and local officials at a press conference that night, the male suspect in the shooting and a female remained barricaded inside his home along and surrounded by a SWAT team, which was called to the scene after shooting broke out. The resident at the address in the raid has been identified as Cullen Mutrie, 29, who was facing steroid possession charges after police who came to his home to confiscate guns after a 2010 domestic violence complaint found them in his living room.

[Update: Mutrie and the as yet unidentified woman were found dead inside the home after a police robot was sent in early last Friday morning. Police said it wasn't clear if it was a murder-suicide or a double suicide. They become the 24th and 25th persons to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year.]

It's not yet clear precisely why police were raiding his home Thursday. Police did confirm it was a drug raid and that the suspect had opened fire. Other than that, it is also unclear exactly what transpired, except that Maloney is dead and four officers are wounded. They have been identified as Det. Jeremiah Murphy of the Rochester Police Department, Det. Gregory Turner of the Dover Police Department, Det. Eric Kulberg of the University of New Hampshire Police Department and Det. Scott Kukesh of the Newmarket Police Department.

Two of the four were shot in the chest and were in intensive care early Friday. Two others were treated and released, one with a gunshot wound to the arm and the other with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. They were working as part of a drug task force.

Maloney, 48, was a 26-year law enforcement veteran and had been chief in Greenland for the past 12 years. He was due to retire in less than two weeks.

Sad

without all the details, it's sad that someone so close to retirement had to go down like that, but still always good to remember...

 

Drugs don't kill policemen, unless they over-dose on some stolen contraband, the Drug War kills policemen...

Drug War

When is the last time you saw a peaceful war ? The "drug war " is about the government waging a war on its own citizens that choose to get high on something other than alcohol . We have 40 years worth of results that clearly show just how abominable this tactic is . Look at Mexico . Cops in Greenland will probably want revenge . More vicious Drug War . More carnage .  Ain`t we having fun !

Also

Considering how Military - Minded Cops like to use Steroids ,  it could have just been a drug deal gone bad .

Exactly! Rhoids and cops!

In addition, I don't understand how the chest wounds were that serious!  Don't these guys use vests?

I agree with everyone who has

I agree with everyone who has made a post except chandu. Why would we want www.replicaorologi4it.com to support the same police that want to gun us down? None of them express any remorse when a druggie is shot down. In fact, I'd say they are pretty proud of themselves. You would think they took down bin Laden every time they kill a druggie. I'd care to bet the SWAT members even go around bragging about killing a druggie. I hate to hear the stories about yet another druggie gunned down by the cops but I freakin' love hearing that some of these druggies take their freedom to heart and decide to protect themselves and fight for their freedom. I don't care how many cops die in the drug war. They are only taking down pot heads because replique montres pot heads are easy targets. They are usually happy and nonviolent and easy to take down. Why would the cops want to go after real criminals like murderers and rapists when the easy job is going after pot heads? If they went after real criminals, they might endanger their own lives. I believe they are all gutless cowards deep down inside. Why else spend all your time shooting pot heads?

LEGALIZE IT, REGULATE IT, TAX IT!!!!  It doesn't get any easier. 

The death of a human being...

is always a sad thing but these people (cops) are the same who are ready to ruin the life, beat or kill peaceful citizens who have the 'fault' of using drugs. I'm not speaking about this episode in particular, but I've seen too many good friends put in great trouble by these mindless bullies and had even a good friend killed in jail in 'obscure circumstances'.... But the suspected guards were judged 'not guilty'...The system never condemn itself ...My friend was in prison waiting for sentence  for growing ten plants of cannabis....I can't respect people who - thanks to racist and criminal laws - harass weak persons...

Shame!

Shame on those of you who rejoice in the killing of other human beings.  We will never create a peaceful world by celebrating and encouraging violence.  Rather follow the examples of Gandhi and Martin Luthor King.  Violence only begets more violence.

"Among the many misdeeds of

"Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."

-Mohandas Gandhi

I'm sure he would have supported arming druggies as well!

Bunch of useless dopeheads

Bunch of useless dopeheads responding as usual. I wish the police were all safe and YOU were all dead. Disgusting, depraved losers. Please - all overdose on the drugs you believe you should be allowed legally to pollute your worthless bodies with and leave this beautiful planet to the rest of us.

The services rendered by the

The services rendered by the New Hampshire Police Chief by sacrificing his life while engaging in a drug raid is highly appreciated. It is sad news that he died, however, his dedicated service is a motivation for all other police officers to wipe out the illegal drug trading.
