The police chief of Manchester, New Hampshire, says the city is safe and police are no longer looking for an armed suspect after two officers were shot and a manhunt started in a neighborhood.        

But Chief Nick Willard stopped short Friday of saying whether the suspect was in custody or being questioned. He said he couldn’t say, “to protect the integrity of the investigation.”

The officers were shot at separate locations around 2 a.m. Friday. Willard said one has been released from the hospital, and the other is in stable condition.

Parts of Manchester’s west side were blocked off and a “shelter in place” order for residents was issued before being lifted before noon Friday.
