Henniker Police investigating reports from NEC students of suspected airsoft gun incident


Henniker Police and Campus Safety are investigating two incidents involving students who were struck by a projectile Thursday, believed to be from an airsoft-style gun, according to two emails from Jason Buck, NEC’s Dean of Students.

“Thankfully, neither student was seriously injured, but these acts are very dangerous and we are concerned about these events,” Buck wrote in the email.

One incident occurred at approximately 11:00 a.m. near the CEI building and Henniker Town Hall. According to a second email from Buck at 5:34 p.m., there was another incident in the same area. It’s unclear what time the second incident took place.

The students reported the projectiles appeared to come from a passing white sedan-type car.

According to the first email from Buck, the student could not identify the individuals inside the car, and no verbal communication or threats were reported from the occupants of the vehicle.

Community members are urged to remain alert and keep a lookout for a sedan matching the description provided.

“We encourage students headed in between those areas to use Circle Street (the loop that runs behind the Little League Field by the back of the Science Building) as a route from the main campus to the Lyons/Science Building area,” Buck wrote.

Henniker Police continues to collect information, Buck wrote. Anyone with information can contact them at 603-428-3213.
