Deaths In N.H. Standoff Ruled Murder-Suicide As Town Mourns

This article is more than 11 years old.

Mourners gathered Saturday for a memorial in honor of a New Hampshire police chief who was shot to death days before retiring.

Greenland police Chief Michael Maloney was trying to serve a search warrant Thursday night when a suspect opened fire, killing him and wounding four officers.

Other community leaders and residents congregated Saturday at a school. Maloney was remembered as active in the community. Selectman John Vitale says he always left a gathering with a chuckle and a handshake.

Others who didn't know him say they came out in support of the community.

Rev. Robert Fellows, pastor of the Greenland Community Congregational Church, says he led a prayer and moment of silence at the meeting. Fellows sees the meeting as a "coming together" for the town.

The gunman, Cullen Mutrie, was later found dead in the home with his on-again, off-again girlfriend, 26-year-old Brittany Tibbetts.

State officials said Saturday that Tibbetts died of a gunshot wound to the head and have ruled her death a homicide. Mutrie also died of a gunshot wound to the head in what's been ruled a suicide.
