New Hampshire standoff ends after 2 found dead in hotel room, man killed by police

Two people were found dead in a hotel room and one man was shot and killed by police in a 15-hour standoff at a New Hampshire hotel that ended Thursday morning, officials said.

Manchester Police Department said on Twitter the standoff at the Quality Inn ended at 10:30 a.m. as authorities were seen bringing a person out on a stretcher at the hotel located near Interstate 293.

When authorities finally gained entry to the first-floor hotel room, they found two people dead inside, Boston 25 reported. Police told the television station the people inside had fired multiple shots out of the room throughout the night.

Stephen Marshall, 51, of Manchester, later died from gunshot wounds, Manchester Police Chief Carlo Capano told reporters.

Capano said Manchester police officers were "attacked" as the two barricaded in the hotel room continue to fire out of the room after making contact with officers. At one point, SWAT team members deployed chemical agents inside the room.
