Former NH Police Commissioner Charged for Role in Teen Shooting

A former New Hampshire police commissioner accused in a shooting of a teenager who mistakenly thought her home was a party venue has been charged.

Brenna Cavanaugh was indicted Tuesday on assault charges in the Aug. 18 shooting.

Police say the teenager went to the address based on a text message he received. He entered the home around 3:30 a.m.

Police say Cavanaugh chased the boy from her home. They say Cavanaugh's partner, Mark Gray, followed and began shooting at the teenager as the teen backed up his truck, hit a pole and drove away.

The teen was not injured.

Gray was charged in the shooting in September. He pleaded not guilty.

A message left with her attorney Saturday wasn't immediately returned.

Cavanaugh spent four years as Portsmouth police commissioner.
