State police are investigating an incident that took place in parking lot at NHTI early Thursday afternoon.

A witness said about a dozen police officers surrounded a white Chevrolet sedan that was partially covered by a tarp.

“There was an incident that happened around 12:30. The New Hampshire state police responded. And it’s under investigation by the state police. There is no threat on campus,” said Alan Blake, the college’s director of communications.

Blake said the incident “did not involve NHTI students directly,” but deferred questions about the nature of the incident to state police.

No classes were interrupted, Blake said, although some traffic had been rerouted.

Concord fire Chief Dan Andrus said the department responded for a call for “medical aid” for someone in a vehicle about 12:26 p.m., but left police to handle the situation within about 15 minutes of arriving on scene. Andrus said it wasn’t clear from the report whether medical aid was administered, but that no one was transported to the hospital.

State police refused to release additional information about the incident. The Monitor has filed a right-to-know request.
