The motive and identity of the assailant, however, remain unknown to the police.

Tragic Loss of Security Officer Bradley Haas
Despite receiving CPR, the law enforcement veteran succumbed to his injuries at Concord Hospital.
On Friday evening, police spokesman Colonel Mark Hall told reporters that the suspect had entered the hospital atrium and fatally shot an unidentified individual.
The suspect was promptly apprehended and slain by a state trooper. The situation, according to Col. Hall, was “confined to the front lobby.”
His statement, in which officers were at work to determine the identity of the shooter, was given while he declined to identify the deceased victim.
A suspicious box truck near the site was searched and determined to pose no threat, according to officials.

Commissioner Lori Weaver of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, who was also present at the conference, stated that all hospital personnel and patients were in good health and that all operations were proceeding according to schedule.
The hospital, boasting an approximate capacity of 185 beds, nevertheless designates itself on its website as the ‘premier acute psychiatric hospital in the state.’
