Manchester police initially responded to the home at around 3:30 a.m. Friday for a 911 report of a person with a gun, a news release said. The officers who responded found the man outside the home, and during the encounter, four officers fired their guns, and one other officer discharged a less lethal option, the AG's office said.

Authorities performed life-saving measures on the man, but he died after being shot, officials said.

The man was identified as 26-year-old Alex Naone of Hooksett, New Hampshire. An autopsy is scheduled to happen on Friday.

No one else was hurt during the incident.

The names of the police officers involved have not been released either, as they are being withheld pending the conclusion of formal interviews. The initial responding officers had body cameras.

Additional details have not been released, and authorities said that the "exact circumstances" remained under investigation. The AG's office said more information would be released when it becomes available.
