Lebanon NH – On November 2, 2018 at approximately 11:15PM, the Lebanon Police Department received multiple reports of gunshots in the area of North Main Street and Fountain Way in Lebanon. Responding officers were checking the area of North Main Street for any involved parties when Sgt. Rich Norris observed a black Ford Fusion in the Boston Lot Lake parking lot. The vehicle was consistent with the description of a possible suspect vehicle in the shooting that had occurred in Hanover, NH earlier in the evening.
As Sgt. Norris attempted to investigate this vehicle further, the vehicle fled northerly on North Main Street and attempted to evade the officer. The vehicle was subsequently involved in a single car motor vehicle accident on Oak Ridge Road, after which two subjects were taken into custody and a Taurus 9mm pistol was recovered in the middle of the roadway near the crashed vehicle.
After a subsequent investigation, Gage Young, age 22 of Oak Ridge Road in Lebanon, was charged with Reckless Conduct and Falsifying Physical Evidence, both Class B Felony charges. It is alleged that Young fired the Taurus pistol in the area of North Main Street and Fountain Way prior to being involved in the pursuit and that Young attempted to discard the pistol after the vehicle had crashed.
Young was transferred to the custody of the Hanover Police Department to face charges involving the shooting incident in their town. The driver, Hector Correa, age 17 of Lebanon, NH, was charged with Disobeying a Police Officer, Class A Misdemeanor, and was later released on a summons to appear in the 2nd Circuit Court, Lebanon District Division, on December 17, 2018.
