PD: Man Shot in Dispute Over Flag; 2 Arrested

Police say 36-year-old Jarrod Ean-Dixon was shot and was hospitalized

Police say a dispute about a flag at a home led to a shooting in Manchester, New Hampshire, and two men arrested. 

Police say one of them, 22-year-old Michael Sirois, found the flag offensive Saturday. Police didn't describe it but media reports say it was a play off the old "Don't Tread on Me'' flag with a snake. It featured a porcupine, the mascot of the Free State Project. 

Police say 36-year-old Jarrod Ean-Dixon was shot and was hospitalized. A woman who suffered a gunshot wound to the leg was released from the hospital.
