Riot reported at Sununu Youth Center In Manchester

By Jeffrey Hastings - Special to The Telegraph | Aug 17, 2022


MANCHESTER – Manchester Police and New Hampshire State Police are on scene at the Sununu Youth Center at 1066 River for a reported riot.

Just after 8 p.m., a radio broadcast from the state police asked that, “all available units respond to the Sununu Center in Manchester for a riot.” The Manchester Police dispatch log shows Manchester Police responding to a riot at 8:06 p.m.

A steady stream of cruisers responded through Manchester, and about 14 cruisers could be seen parked outside of the main entrance of the building.

AMR ambulance was dispatched to stage in the area and await instructions from law enforcement.

A state police broadcast advised responding units that the staff had possibly secured themselves in a room, and that they did not believe the residents had weapons.

As of 9 p.m. law enforcement that originally responded remains at the scene.

Additional updates are forthcoming.
