Shot that killed Greenland chief likely came from basement
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — The shot that killed Greenland police chief Michael Maloney during a drug raid and firefight may have been fired from the front window in the basement, new court documents show.
A search warrant affidavit released Wednesday says Cullen Mutrie fired on four drug task force detectives immediately after they kicked in his front door when he did not respond to their knocks.
The warrant states that gunfire later came from a basement window on the front side of the house.
The bodies of Mutrie and girlfriend Brittany Tibbetts were found in the basement. Investigators say Mutrie shot Tibbetts before killing himself.
Attorney General Michael Delaney said Tuesday that Maloney helped four wounded officers into vehicles. He said Maloney was shot once in the head while crouched behind his cruiser.
