CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Six months after a suspected drug dealer was fatally shot by a police officer in the New Hampshire town of Weare, the state attorney general’s office has released the names of the five officers at the scene.

Attorney General Joseph Foster said his office’s investigation to determine whether the shooting was justified is expected to take at least two more months. He said this case has “numerous factors” that have resulted in a lengthy and more complex investigation.

The shooting took place the night of Aug. 14 on Route 114 in Weare, and stemmed from an investigation into heroin dealing. Killed was 35-year-old Alex Cora DeJesus of Manchester.

The officers were Sgt. Joseph Kelley; Sgt. Kenneth Cox; Detective Frank Hebert; Officer Nicolas Nadeau; and Officer Brandon Montplaisir.
