CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire attorney general says he cannot determine whether a Weare officer was justified in shooting to death a drug suspect in August.

Although two officers fired at 35-year-old Alex Cora DeJesus of Manchester, Attorney General Joseph Foster says Officer Nicholas Nadeau fired the fatal shot Aug. 14.

Foster also says he could not determine — after an 8-month investigation — whether Nadeau’s actions were reasonable.

Officials say DeJesus was shot during an undercover drug sting in a plaza along Route 114 — the main thoroughfare in Weare — around 10 p.m. Two shots were fired, one of which hit DeJesus in the head. He fled in his car and crashed in a stand of trees.
