Medical examiners found that Yancey, a 43-year-old from Manchester, was killed by homicide — meaning he was shot by another person — but part of the ongoing investigation is whether Yancey was shot by someone defending themselves, authorities said.

They didn't provide details on what happened in the incident. Authorities had earlier described the incident as an "untimely death."
