Convicted Felon Arrested Quickly By MPD In Shooting Investigation

Updated: Feb 19

MANCHESTER, NH - Manchester Police responded to a report of a shooting on Nashua Street near Maple Street Monday.

Responding officers arriving at the scene at about 1:20 p.m. found several shell casings in the street and damage to a multi-unit residence on Nashua Street. They quickly located a woman whom a bullet had hit.

AMR ambulance responded to the scene and walked the woman, who sources indicate was in her twenties. She was being treated for what was described as a “graze” from a bullet

in her arm. She was transported to a local hospital; the injuries, according to police, are not life-threatening.

Police blocked off Nashua Street and placed evidence markers on the pavement across from the house. It appears there were at least seven shell casings on the pavement, which were marked by the evidence markers.

Witnesses told police they saw a black car pull up to 37 Nashua Street. Two males got out; at least one fired multiple gunshots toward the building, and then they both left. Police learned that a female outside the residence was hit in the arm and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers could be seen looking at damage on the exterior first-floor wall of the structure and placing markers on the side of the building.

The building also sustained damage, and police found several shell casings on the ground.

Less than 4 hours after the shooting, one of the people allegedly involved was arrested at a business where he reportedly works.

Police arrested convicted felon Johaly Maria, 22, of Manchester, and he faces charges of first-degree assault, reckless conduct, and felon in possession of a dangerous weapon.

Court records indicate that Maria has previously been convicted of armed robbery and weapon charges and received a suspended sentence on the charges.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information about this shooting incident should call Manchester Police at 603-668-8711.
