Investigation continues into suspicious death

April 03, 2019
BRISTOL – There is an ongoing investigation into the death of a man who was found inside an apartment building located at 76 Summer St. in Bristol last Friday afternoon.

Just after 2 p.m. on March 29, police were called to the multi-family residence for the report of a shooting incident. Upon discovering that the victim was deceased, they were soon joined by members of the N.H. State Police as well as the investigative team from the New Hampshire State Attorney General's Office.

Later reports from the AG's office stated that 52-year-old Steven Hall received a fatal gunshot wound to the abdomen, and an autopsy performed by Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jennie Ducal the following day also confirmed that the cause of Hall's death was a homicide.

Through their immediate investigation, public safety officials found there was no danger to the public on Friday. After a brief detour of traffic on Summer Street in Bristol (also known as Route 104), traffic was again allowed through the area once it was secured and the process of collecting evidence and statements from witnesses was underway.

Bristol Police Chief James McIntire and his department could offer no comment about the incident since it is now in the hands of the Attorney General's office.

Assistant Attorney General Peter Hinckley would also not immediately discuss the circumstances surrounding Hall's death because it is part of an active and ongoing investigation.
