Newmarket, NH, Man Shot Dead by York County Sheriff’s Deputy
A Newmarket man was fatally shot by a York County Sheriff's Office Deputy during a "disturbance" in a home on Wednesday evening.
York County Sheriff William King said officers responded to a "disturbance" at a home on Rosemont Avenue in North Waterboro around 6:50 p.m. and got into a struggle with Tyler Woodburn, 30, of Newmarket, as they tried to take him into custody.
Shots were fired by Deputy Levi Johnson, and Woodburn was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to King.
King did not disclose the nature of the disturbance or the circumstances.
Johnson is on administrative leave, a standard protocol while the Attorney General’s Office investigates the use of deadly force, according to King.
