No law enforcement officers were injured, officials said.

Nashua police had responded to the store to follow up on a report from Pelham police about a Pelham man who was armed earlier in the evening and was last seen leaving his home, according to officials.

Sources told News 9 Investigates that just before 8 p.m., Pelham police received a call from a relative about the man. They said he was having a mental health episode and was armed with a gun. Police searched the area and could not find him. A be-on-the-lookout was put out to area police departments and a short time later, the man was found in the Lowe’s parking lot.

Officials said they would identify the man who died when autopsy results are released.

The identities of the officers involved in the shooting will not be released until formal interviews take place in the next 5-10 days.

Officials said the investigation by the New Hampshire Department of Justice and the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit is ongoing.
