BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) _ Authorities say a New Hampshire police officer was shot to death after he responded to a domestic disturbance at a home that later exploded and burned.
       
The gunman is presumed dead in the ensuing blaze.
       
Attorney General Joseph Foster says Monday night 48-year-old Brentwood Police Officer Stephen Arkell was shot to death when he answered the call in a suburban neighborhood.
       
After the shooting, the house burst into flames. A massive explosion blew the front off the house and within an hour, it was leveled.
       
Foster says 47-year-old Michael Nolan, the son of the homeowner, is the suspected gunman. He is presumed dead.
       
A third person has been taken to a hospital.
