Hopkinton, N.H. — A report released by the Attorney General’s Office this evening says police officers were justified in using deadly force in the shooting of a 31-year-old Quechee man last week.

Bryan Evans was shot along Interstate 89 in Hopkinton. Evans faces a felony charge of receiving stolen property, New Hampshire State Police said earlier today.

Evans, who was hospitalized after the shooting Friday evening, was arrested on Saturday and charged with receiving stolen property count, as well as misdemeanor charges of unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle, criminal threatening, and disobeying an officer, according to a State Police news release.

Hartford police on Wednesday told the Valley News that the car involved had been taken from the Murphy Road home in Quechee of the suspect’s mother, and that New Hampshire State Police located the vehicle within an hour of it being reported as stolen.
