BODYCAM: N.H. Shooting of Knife-Wielding Man
Officers cleared in the killing of a man who repeatedly charged them with a knifeBy Calibre Press | Nov 5, 2015
The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office says the police officers involved in a fatal shooting in Bath in early July were legally justified using deadly force.
Haverhill Police Officers Ryan Jarvis and Greg Collins were cleared after fatally shooting Hagen Esty-Lennon of Canterbury, N.H. shortly before 4 p.m. on July 6.
The officers were called to Route 302 toward Woodsville where they found a man suffering from what appeared to be a stab wound to the chest, officials say. They both activated their body cameras, and one of the two cruisers also had its camera on.
They told the 6-foot-1, 275-pound man to show his hands, which he initially did, officials say, but then he reached into his pocket and pulled out a knife. He then approached the officers and did not stop despite officers repeatedly telling him to stop moving toward them.
