MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — The two remaining people involved in a 15-hour standoff at a hotel have been found dead inside a room, after a man was killed outside the building in a shooting that involved law enforcement, the New Hampshire attorney general’s office said Thursday.

The two were found inside a room at the Quality Inn in Manchester. At least one had fired multiple gunshots out of the room during a nine-hour span, according to a release from the attorney general’s office.

The two weren’t identified and it wasn’t immediately known how they died. A news conference was planned Thursday afternoon.

The standoff began Wednesday around 7:30 p.m. when a man with a gun in his hand “engaged” with police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents outside the Quality Inn in a busy area that includes a shopping mall.

Assistant Attorney General Ben Agati said a Manchester police officer and a DEA agent both fired their weapons.

Authorities identified the man outside killed as Stephen Marshall, 51, of Manchester. Marshall was pronounced dead at the hospital, and an autopsy was scheduled.

Officers and two people barricaded inside a hotel room then engaged in a standoff throughout the night into Thursday morning.

Police made contact with the two at one point. Multiple shots were fired and SWAT team members deployed chemical agents inside the room.

Manchester Police Chief Carlo Capano said Manchester police officers were “attacked.”

“It’s something that we can’t tolerate. It’s something that we’re not going to tolerate,” he said.

Police had cleared the hotel and a nearby restaurant.

One thought on “3 Dead In 15-Hour Hotel Standoff

    White devil strikes again. Tad-Michael Norman, 33, was arrested at the scene on investigation of homicide, assault and robbery, and is expected to make his first court appearance Friday. My theory – he was tired of being married to that ugly woman and hated his life. Yep – kill people, wreck cars and the blue racists can somehow take this murderer in alive. Strange things happen when skin color is pasty nasty white. Excuses will start rolling in – he was drunk, stressed, he is a good man, we didn’t see this coming. The white man’s get out of jail free card – he was suffering from a mental illness.
