Two municipal New Hampshire detectives who were shot in the chest during a drug raid have been upgraded to stable condition, reports WMUR.
Det. Scott Kukesh of the Newmarket Police Department and Det. Jeremiah Murphy of the Rochester Police Department were critically wounded late Thursday during a narcotics raid that claimed the life of Greenland Police Chief Mike Maloney. Two other officers were also wounded when suspect Cullen Mutrie opened fire on the officers.
Kukesh and Murphy were shot while executing a search warrant at Mutrie's residence on Post Road in Greenland.
"At this time both are comfortable, their conditions are stable and their families are by their sides," Portsmouth Regional Hospital Dr. Timothy Pike told Seacoast Online.
Det. Gregory Turner of the Dover Police Department and Officer Eric Kulberg of the University of New Hampshire Police Department were also shot, but suffered minor injuries.
