 A New Hampshire police chief was killed and four officers were wounded when a drug raid turned into a shootout in the suburban community of Greenland on Thursday evening, officials said.

The shootings took place when police arrived at the house to carry out a search warrant, and turned into an armed standoff with the suspected gunman and a woman barricaded inside.

Local, state and federal law enforcement officers later surrounded the home in the town of 3,500, about 60 miles north of Boston.

"Presently the armed subject and a female remain inside the home," Michael Delaney, New Hampshire's attorney general, told a news conference. "We are working with federal, state and local law enforcement officers to obtain a peaceful resolution of what is going on at the home."

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch identified the deceased officer in a statement as Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney. New Hampshire's WMUR TV said Maloney, 48, was just a week shy of retirement.

The four wounded officers had been taken to a local hospital for treatment, and were from the University of New Hampshire police department and those from the nearby towns of Dover, Rochester and Newmarket.
