A New Hampshire police officer was fatally shot Monday while responding to a domestic dispute call at a home that subsequently exploded, authorities said.

Police Officer Steve Arkell, 48, was fatally shot upon entering the house, located in a development called Mill Pond Crossing, a retirement community, New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster said.

Another police officer arrived at the home, but was driven out by gunfire, Foster said.

Foster identified the alleged shooter as Michael Nolan, 47, the son of the home's owner, Walter Nolan, 86.


Shortly after the gunfire, fire broke out at the house, followed by a dramatic explosion, caught on video by a news helicopter hovering overhead.
