GREENLAND, N.H. — New Hampshire Attorney General Mike Delaney says one police officer has been killed and four hurt in a shooting stemming from a drug investigation in the small town of Greenland.

He says an armed person and a woman remain in the home where the incident started around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police remain on the scene. Delaney says he can't release much information because there is still an active armed standoff in the neighborhood.

State police and officers from many departments have responded to the small seacoast community about five miles from Portsmouth. The neighborhood around the shooting scene is blocked off.

The names of the officer killed and those who have hurt have not been released because their relatives have not all been notified.
