While officers were at the first shooting, they heard multiple shots being fired nearby and located a second shooting scene on Cedar Street. There they found two vehicles and a building damaged by bullets.

Shortly afterward, police were told that a male had come into Elliot Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. Police said he is in critical but stable condition.

Police have made an arrest in connection with the shooting on Cedar Street. Police apprehended 23 year-old male Angel Janiel Rivera Calderon after a brief pursuit, in which during that time Calderon discarded his weapon, only for it to be located later.

Calderon was arrested for Operating with a Suspended License, and for Disobeying a Police Officer. He was also later charged with seven counts of Felony Reckless Conduct for firing a handgun into an occupied building, and one count of Felony Falsifying Physical Evidence for discarding a firearm during a pursuit.

Calderon is scheduled to be arraigned at Hillsborough County Superior Court on March 28.

Police said the two shootings are being investigated separately at this time. Anyone with information on either shooting is asked to call 603-668-8711. Anonymous tips can be called in to the Manchester Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
