An Allenstown woman accused of shooting her then-boyfriend in the leg was indicted by a Merrimack County grand jury.

Rebecca Manning, 28, is charged with reckless conduct and second-degree assault, both domestic violence-related. She also faces a felony count of criminal threatening in connection with the incident July 7 in Allenstown.

Prosecutors allege in indictments that Manning pointed a loaded handgun at Elijah Gross and then shot him in the left thigh. The shooting took place in a motor vehicle, court records show.

Officers from the Epsom, Pembroke and Bow police departments helped Allenstown execute Manning’s arrest in mid-July alongside the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit – a regional SWAT team – and the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Department. Officers responded with an armored vehicle known as a BearCat.
