Grafton man identified as deceased in Walpole officer-involved shooting

A Grafton man killed in an officer-involved shooting in Walpole Friday died from gunshot wounds to the head, chest and abdomen, authorities said Saturday.

Authorities identified the man as Larry Albert Bohannon, who was born in 1961, making him 51 or 52 years old.

Dr. Thomas Andrew, the state's chief medical examiner, performed an autopsy on Bohannon's body Saturday, according to the state Attorney General's Office.

"The investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death is continuing and no further information is expected to be released until early next week," the AG's office said in a statement.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Janice Rundles earlier said the man killed was involved in an armed robbery in Bellows Falls, Vt., earlier Friday. The man "was said to have worn a ski mask and carried a handgun," she said. The man fled to New Hampshire and officers from Walpole and Alstead pursued his vehicle.

"At the end of the pursuit, shots were fired and the suspect was killed at the scene," Rundles said.

She said she couldn't comment on whether the man fired at police or whether authorities recovered a handgun. She said the man failed to comply with orders from police.

David Tuttle, who lives next door to the crime scene, said he could hear a chase.

"I could hear sirens. Right here, I heard a screech and then a thud and a few seconds later, some shots and a little bit after that some shots," Tuttle told the New Hampshire Union Leader.

"I'm going to guess there were two groups, each with three or four (shots)," he said.
