Post Road Reopens After Shootings
The investigation is ongoing, but limited information is available.
Post Road in Greenland fully reopened today for the first time since a tragic shooting Thursday that claimed the life of Police Chief Michael Maloney and a local woman and sent four other officers to the hospital.
The home at 517 Post Road remains boarded up, but no police were at the scene on Monday. Outpourings of affection toward Maloney can be seen throughout town. Numerous signboards contain heartfelt messages about Maloney, and many Post Road residents have placed potted plants and American flags by the roadside.
Assistant Attorney General Jeff Strelzin said the investigation is still ongoing, although he said officials will "not be answering any more questions" about the incident, which an autopsy revealed ended with the death of the shooter, Cullen Mutrie, in an apparent murder-suicide.
The charges on the warrant police were attempting to serve Mutrie are still unknown, and Strelzin declined comment about that and other specific parts of the investigation.
"Any information we plan to release we will put out publicly," he said. "It's an ongoing investigation, so I'm not going to answer that."
Beverly Mutrie, the mother of the shooter, who was a Winnacunnet High School graduate and former volunteer Hampton Falls firefighter, declined comment when approached Monday with questions about her son's life and the man she knew.
Standing behind the counter of a small copy center she owns and operates near downtown Hampton, she said she declined comment because she doesn't want any statements or reflections about her son to be "taken the wrong way."
