The incident began just after 5 p.m. on Sunday when officers were called to reports of an active shooter in the parking lot of the store, which is located on Depot Street in the downtown area. Goffstown is a town in Hillsborough County, about 7 miles northwest of Manchester.

One person was shot in the parking lot and rushed to an area hospital, where the victim later succumbed to their injuries. There was no immediate word on the exact circumstances of the shooting, a possible motive, or the victim's identity.

"None of our employees or customers were injured in today's events. Big Hugs to my staff today," the store said on its Twitter account.

A large number of police officers, including a SWAT team, have responded to the scene. Police are looking for a suspect who may still be in the area, but there was no indication of a threat to the wider public.

People are asked to avoid the area and roads in the area are blocked by police. Businesses in the area are on lockdown as a precaution while the search for the shooter continues. Police seem to be focusing on the Main Street bridge area.

"There does not appear to be any danger to the public stemming from this incident," the office of Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald said in a statement.
