    A man who shot a New Hampshire police officer early Thursday during an hourslong standoff in Weare died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities announced Friday.

    An autopsy by the New Hampshire Chief Medical Examiner determined 43-year-old Jeffrey Clough-Garvin killed himself by firing a shotgun into his chest, according to the office of Attorney General Gordon MacDonald.

    Clough-Garvin also had other gunshot wounds in addition to the self-inflicted one, according to the medical examiner.

    Clough-Garvin was found dead in a home on Buckley Road Thursday morning, after a long standoff with police.

    Weare police had received a call of an ongoing domestic violence incident at 1:42 a.m. and went to the home, where they encountered Clough-Garvin. He opened fire at responding officers.

    Clough-Garvin then barricaded himself inside the home, prompting authorities to call in a SWAT team and order a shelter-in-place. As of 9 a.m., the threat was "mitigated," police had said.

    Twenty-seven-year-old Weare office William Paul Lewis was shot in the arm during the shootout and taken to Concord Hospital for treatment. The injured officer was slated to undergo surgery Thursday and was described as "stable and in good spirits."

    A second officer who opened fire has been placed on leave. His name is being withheld.

    The investigation into Clough-Garvin's encounter with police is ongoing.
