Deadly Shooting at Manchester Bar Frequented by NEC Students


A 24-year-old man was killed in a fight outside of a Manchester bar in the early morning hours on Saturday, January 28th, police said.

The Attorney General’s Office stated the shooting occurred around 12:45 a.m. outside of The Goat Bar and Grill on Old Granite Street. The bar is frequented by many New England College students.

New England College student Logan Cassin said he last visited The Goat at the end of the fall semester.

“It’s crazy because it could have been anybody,” Cassin said.

Monica Andrade said she would probably take some time off before revisiting The Goat.

Officers found 24-year-old Timothy Pouliot, of Manchester, suffering from gunshot wounds and said the shooting took place outside following an altercation inside the bar. Pouliot was later pronounced dead at the scene.

John Delee, 22, from Salem, New Hampshire, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

Delee was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, January 30 at Hillsborough County Superior Court.
