    FRANCONIA, N.H. -- A police officer was shot and killed in Franconia on Friday night along with another man who was a cousin of champion skier Bode Miller.

    Neither the officer's nor the other person's identities were immediately released, and there were no details released about the circumstances of the shootings. But a relative of the other man said that he was a cousin of Bode Miller in his 20s.

    Police blocked off a section of Route 116 south of Franconia's town center while they investigated. Reports of a shooting began coming in just before 6:30 p.m. Gov. John Lynch and the attorney's general office confirmed that a police officer was shot and killed later Friday evening but were unable to give any details.

    "We will certainly be working throughout the night on this case," Attorney General Kelly Ayotte said. "The State Police Major Crime Unit will be working though the night with my office."

    Officials said that there was no threat to the public.

    The last police officer killed in the line of duty was Manchester Officer Michael Briggs, who was shot and killed in October 2006.

          Good job on the part of the civilian. It appears that skier Bode Miller's cousin was the suspect.

          Condolences to the officer's family.

          Date of Incident: Friday, May 11, 2007
          Weapon Used: Gun; Unknown type
          Suspect Info: Killed by a civilian

          Corporal Bruce McKay was shot and killed during a motor vehicle stop.

          Corporal McKay attempted to pull over the suspect on Route 116, but he took off, leading the officer on a brief pursuit. When he stopped the suspect a second time a mile up the road, he used pepper spray to subdue him. The suspect then shot the officer four times and ran the officer over with his car.

          A civilian witnessed the incident and rushed to the officer's aid. He grabbed the officer's gun and ordered the suspect to drop his weapon. The civilian shot the suspect when he tried to reload his gun. The state has decided the civilian's were justified and he will not face any charges.

          Corporal McKay was a 12-year veteran of the Franconia Police Department.
