Police: New Hampshire Teen Facing Multiple Charges Following Gun Threat

Police say Anfernee King threatened a 19-year-old Manchester resident

A New Hampshire teenager is facing multiple charges following an alleged gun threat at a home in Manchester on Saturday.

Police said officers responded to a home on Merrimack Street at 5:11 p.m. when a 19-year-old resident called to report that he had been threatened.

The man said Anfernee King, 18, of Manchester, allegedly showed up at his door with a gun in his hand. King then fled the scene in a silver Nissan Maxima.

An officer spotted the vehicle near King's home and saw him getting out. When the officer told him to stop, police said King fled inside his house where the officer took him into custody.

While in custody, police said officers found a baggie of Xanax pills on King. A further search of King’s apartment resulted in the seizure of a semi-automatic handgun, more than ounces of marijuana and cocaine.

King was charged with 3 counts of possession of controlled drug, 1 count of criminal threatening, 1 count of falsifying physical evidence and 1 count of resisting arrest. He is due to be arraigned in the 9th Circuit Court Manchester on Monday.
