CONCORD, N.H. - A U-Haul truck found near last week'sat New Hampshire Hospital in Concord was rented by the gunman, investigators said Wednesday.
The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office said 33-year-old John Madore rented the truck on Friday, November 17, just hours before he went to the hospital and shot and killed 63-year-old security officer.
Madore was shot and killed moments later by a state trooper.
After the shooting, the U-Haul wasidling in the hospital's parking lot. An AR-style rifle and multiple magazines of ammunition were found inside it. It wasn't until Wednesday that Attorney General John Formella's office confirmed it was rented by Madore.
Formella said Madore was homeless and had recently stayed at a hotel on the Seacoast and then in Concord. Madore was a patient at the hospital six years ago, but the motive for the shooting is still not known.
