(BRENTWOOD, N.H.) — The explosion that leveled a New Hampshire home after a cop was shot dead was probably not accidental, New Hampshire police said Tuesday.

The blast occurred Monday in Brentwood after Officer Steve Arkell was called about a domestic dispute at the home of Michael Nolan and his father Walter Nolan. The officer was shot dead and when more police arrived, the home erupted in a fireball.

When asked about the cause of the explosion, Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said it was not yet clear, but added “accidental is probably not likely.”
