Four of the six police officers who shot at a 52-year-old man in Pittsfield during a fatal standoff earlier this month were from the Concord Police Department, the Attorney General’s Office revealed on Friday.

Officers from Pittsfield and Henniker rounded out the six individuals who comprised a portion of the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit, which assisted local law enforcement in an effort to end the ordeal that began with a “domestic disturbance.”

Three other members of the Special Operations Unit – two from Concord, one from Bradford – fired their “less-than-lethal” weapons, like a beanbag shotgun, the AG’s Office said.

Tony Hannon, of Pittsfield, exchanged gunfire with police before he was killed on June 14 after barri

cading himself inside his home, on Lyford Hill Road, the Attorney General’s Office said. He died of “multiple gunshot wounds,” according to his autopsy.

Concord police named were: Matthew Doyon, who joined the force in 2017; Almadin Dzelic, who has spent his entire 16-year career in Concord; Sgt. Craig Levesque, who also began his career in Concord, joining the department in 2003; and Nicholas McNutt, a Concord officer for eight years after three years with the Hopkinton force.

The two other officers were Jesse Colby, an Army veteran who joined the Henniker Police Department in 2015 and worked for the Concord Police Department before that; and Pittsfield Sgt. Joseph DiGeorge, who joined the force in 2005 and has been a police officer for approximately eighteen years.

According to police, Pittsfield officers were dispatched to 40 Lyford Hill Road to investigate a reported domestic disturbance. Hannon, the police said, refused to come out. Circumstances surrounding the incident remain unclear, and more information is expected after the investigation has been completed. The three additional members of the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit that “discharged less-than-lethal weapons during this incident,” were Sgt. Christian Lovejoy and Detective Thomas Sheveland of the Concord Police Department, as well as Detective Kevin Faria of the Bradford force.
