There was an officer-involved shooting at a liquor store in Hampton, New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Attorney General's office said Tuesday afternoon.

Few details were released about the shooting.

A state trooper spotted the truck at the liquor store at about 12:24 p.m.

"This incident is being investigated by the Attorney General's Office in conjunction with the State Police Major Crime Unit", the AG's office said.

Further information was not immediately available.

According to police reports, 36 year-old Barry Jones of Portsmouth was intoxicated when he stole his neighbor's truck and threatened an individual with a handgun.

An officer was shot while trying to take one of the suspects in to custody.

Authorities are reviewing surveillance video from the liquor store, MacDonald said.

Shortly before the shooting, police dispatchers reported that a pickup truck that was possibly stolen was being sought by Portsmouth police. He said the man was "never really inside the store" from what he could see.

MacDonald said the names of the troopers involved would not be released pending formal interviews with them.
