Pedestrian shoots passenger in car on Somerville Street
A responding officer applied a combat tourniquet to control the bleeding of the 25-year-old passenger, whom police found at the Queen City Avenue 7-Eleven after the driver sped away from the shooting.
Police said the shooting took place late Monday night on Somerville Street.
After speaking to the victim, police said they quickly located Thomas Landry, 25, on Somerville Street. He matched the description of the shooter, police said.
Police said Landry told them he had been robbed and became increasingly agitated as police questioned him.
"He began to yell and shout at people in the area and became aggressive towards them despite warnings to desist," police said in a statement.
Landry, who lives at 759 Somerville St., was initially charged with disorderly conduct and eventually charged in connection with the shooting. Those charges include first-degree assault, criminal threatening and reckless conduct.
Arraigned Tuesday morning in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, Landry's bail was set at $50,000 cash or surety. Landry, who told police he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from military service, could enter no plea to felony charges of first-degree assault, criminal threatening and reckless conduct.
A probable cause hearing on the felonies and a status hearing on a disorderly conduct charge were set for July 30 at 11 a.m.
Police said the investigation remains active. The motive remains unclear, and there appears to be no connection between Landry and the two women.
Police first received word of the shooting about 11:23 p.m.
They said 23-year-old driver of the car was traveling east on Somerville Street past Wilson Street when a man on foot entered the roadway. The driver stopped, expecting the person to cross the street in front of her.
Instead, the pedestrian approached the driver's side of the car and pointed a handgun into the driver's open window, the women told police. He fired the gun within feet of the vehicle, striking the passenger in the leg.
The driver reported feeling the concussion of the fired shot and immediately drove away, ultimately traveling to the 7-Eleven where they sought help from a clerk and customers.
