Names Released in Fatal Shooting Near NH Space Force Station

In investigating the May shooting of Michael Foley, the attorney general's office reveals the names of the individuals who fired

Authorities have released the names of a police officer and security guard who fired at a man near the New Boston Space Force Station earlier this month, resulting in his death.

Michael Foley, 33, of Massachusetts, was shot to death May 13 on an access road to the station, which tracks satellites and assists with tracking of commercial space launches.

Two individuals fired their guns: New Boston Police Officer Shane Morton and security guard Peter White, the attorney general’s office said Wednesday. Morton has been with the New Boston Police Department for about five years, and White has worked for Lockwood Hills security company for six years, authorities said.

The investigation into whether their use of force was justified is ongoing.
