MEREDITH, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire state prosecutors have identified the officer who shot and killed a man in Meredith last weekend.

Meredith Officer Kevin O’Reilly shot David Donovan, 35, on Nov. 15, state Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said Friday.

O’Reilly has been a Meredith officer for 12 years, MacDonald’s office said. He was interviewed by investigators Friday afternoon. The death remains under investigation.

It couldn’t be determined if O’Reilly has a lawyer. A representative for the Meredith Police Association didn’t respond to an email seeking comment Saturday.

Donovan died at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia following the shooting. An autopsy showed Donovan was shot twice, once in the right arm and once in the abdomen.

Three other people at the scene were also hurt, prosecutors said. One was taken to a hospital for treatment. No officers were hurt.
