Grafton County, NH – Redacted police body camera videos of a fatal police shooting in Grafton County that were released Friday show a knife-wielding 41-year-old New Hampshire man running away from officers in July before turning back toward them when he saw that they were in pursuit.
Three videos taken from body cameras worn by the Haverhill officers — the two worn by Ryan Jarvis and Greg Collins, who confronted and shot Hagen Esty-Lennon, and a third worn by Sgt.Wallace Trott, who arrived at the scene a short time later — and a video captured by a dashboard camera in a parked police cruiser were released by the Attorney General’s Office Friday following a judge’s order.
