PELHAM, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire attorney general’s office says a Nashua police officer has died of a head wound that appears to have been accidental and did not involve a gun.

Authorities said a 911 call was made from a home in Pelham late Wednesday. Police found the 23-year-old officer suffering from the head wound. He was taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

WMUR-TV reports the officer was off-duty at the time.

His name has not been released pending notification of family. He was a full-time police officer in Nashua and had been with the department for 2 ½ years.

An autopsy has been scheduled.
