Police looking for leads in neighborhood shooting death

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police are asking for the public’s help in trying to find out how and why a woman was shot and killed as she went for a weekly walk in a Manchester neighborhood.

Authorities say 62-year-old Denise Robert was walking in the North End section of Manchester at about 9 p.m. Sunday, an area regarded as a safe neighborhood, when she was shot. There were reports of a pickup truck speeding away with a white man in his 20s or 30s wearing a white tank top and having close-cropped hair.

Before her walk, Robert, a longtime advertising employee for the Union Leader Corp., went to the Executive Health and Sports Center in Manchester, followed by trips to Vitamin World, Wal-Mart and Hannaford.

Police Chief Nick Willard said he’s increasing patrols in the area.
