New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, State Police Colonel Robert L. Quinn and Derry Police Chief Edward B. Garone announced an investigation has been launched into a shooting death in Derry. At approximately eleven nineteen on Wednesday night, officers from the Derry Police Department responded to a 9 1 1 call on North Shore Road near Island Pond Road. Once there, officers discovered seventeen year old Cole Kinney of Lowell, MA dead of a gunshot wound.

Brian Strong of the New Hampshire State Police at 2 2 3 8 5 6 8 or at brian dot strong @ d o s dot n h dot gov.

I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves. Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I, alone, can fix it. I have seen firsthand how the system is rigged against our citizens just like it was rigged against Bernie Sanders. He never had a chance.
So said G O P presidential candidate Donald J. Trump last night as he accepted the party’s nomination. The speech, which ran more than an hour and fifteen minutes, was vintage Trump as he carried the fight directly to Hillary Clinton, in a rousing speech that brought the convention hall to its feet in applause on numerous occasions. Trump indicted Clinton on issue after issue and reinforcing the themes highlighted over the previous three days of the convention. While avoiding specifics, Trump presented the issue areas in which he planned to take action to Make American One Again, last night’s theme and Make America Great Again, his campaign theme. Will will discuss!
