On April 9, 2022, Manchester Police with the assistance of Concord Police, the Central NH Regional SWAT team, and the US Marshal Service arrested 45-year-old Marcos Nieves in connection with a shooting that took place last month in Manchester.
On March 21, 2022, police responded to 137 Orange St for a report of a shooting.
Arriving officers located a deceased dog and multiple shell cases inside the apartment.
Through the course of the investigation, police learned that a man known to the victims forced his way into the apartment. Almost immediately he began shooting and in the process, a dog was shot and killed.
When the shooting began a man inside the apartment tried to escape and ultimately dove through a second-floor glass window, suffering serious injuries.
Through the course of the investigation, Manchester Police established probable cause to charge Nieves. A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was located today in Concord. Nieves faces multiple felony charges including Burglary, Criminal Threatening, 3 counts of Reckless Conduct, Armed Career Criminal, Felon in Possession of a Deadly Weapon, and Animal Cruelty.
We are very thankful for the assistance we received from Concord Police, the Central NH Regional SWAT team, and the US Marshal Service. The collaborative efforts were instrumental in bringing this operation to a safe conclusion.
