Girard at Large has learned that the person killed outside of the Ace Hardware store in downtown Goffstown was student at Manchester’s Memorial High School.

While we have learned the identity of the student, along with other information, we will not release it given the ongoing investigation.  Our sources have told us the shooting victim, who was shot in the neck and did not survive, was part of a drug deal gone bad.  Sources say word of the teen’s death has caused several Memorial students to go to Catholic Medical Center, where the victim was taken.
