Police Investigate Homicide in NH

New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster and Rochester Police Chief Michael Allen announced Monday that an investigation is underway into a shooting incident that occurred on Sunday night.

Rochester police officers responded to Sylvain Street after an altercation was reported around 10:06 p.m.

Upon arrival on scene, officers discovered two adult males at the scene, one of whom had been shot. According to Foster's Daily Democrat, the incident was the result of a dispute between two co-workers and best friends.

Richard Dumont, age 37, of Rochester, was identified as the gunshot victim.

Dumont was treated at the scene and then transported to the hospital. He didn't survive his injuries.

The New Hampshire Chief Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy on Dumont Tuesday.

Police determined that the shooting didn't involve strangers, instead both parties knew one another.

The investigation is ongoing and still in its early stages.
