CLAREMONT, N.H. — The New Hampshire attorney general’s office says only one officer was involved in the fatal shooting of a Claremont man last weekend.
It identified him as Cpl. Ian Kibbe, a 2 ½-year member of the Claremont Police Department. He responded Sunday and shot 25-year-old Cody Lafont in a confrontation. An autopsy showed Lafont was shot in the chest three times.
The attorney general’s office said Friday that Kibbe was the only officer present at the time of the shooting. There was no recording device that captured the shooting. The department doesn’t have body or cruiser cameras.
Police Chief Alex Scott had said an officer was removed from duty pending the investigation’s outcome.
