A Manchester man who allegedly shot out the front tire of a vehicle on Route 43 in Northwood has been indicted by a grand jury at Rockingham County Superior Court in Brentwood.

Luke Foster, 20, is charged with criminal threatening with a deadly weapon and three counts of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon related to incidents in Deerfield and Northwood on May 9.

According to court paperwork, on the day in question Foster first pointed a shotgun at a person and their vehicle as they passed by the black truck Foster was driving in Deerfield. He then fired the gun across the road.

Northwood police were later called at 4:15 p.m. after Foster allegedly shot at a second vehicle, a silver sedan, as it was traveling on Route 43.

Northwood Police Chief Glen Drolet said on the day of the incident that a front tire was blown out in the second victim's car.

Drolet said they found Foster and the black truck he was driving about a third of a mile down the road. Foster had parked at someone's house.

Foster is scheduled for an arraignment and dispositional conference on Aug. 12.
