A man linked to a double shooting in Nashua, N.H., late yesterday afternoon died last night of what police described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head while sitting in a car parked near Market Basket at 700 Essex St.
Police would not release the name of the man, who was described as being in his early to mid-30s and with possible ties to the Lawrence area.
About 9 p.m., Lawrence Police Sgt. Shawn Quaglietta spotted a car matching one mentioned less than an hour earlier in police bulletins in connection with the double shooting in Nashua hours earlier.
Soon after Quaglietta spotted the car, the man shot himself. Quaglietta called for an ambulance as other detectives and patrol officers converged on the scene.
