(MANCHESTER, N.H.) — Police are no longer looking for the suspect accused of shooting two police officers in New Hampshire early Friday morning, according to authorities.

The suspect had fled after allegedly shooting two cops at separate locations at around 2 a.m. in Manchester, New Hampshire, the Manchester Police Department told ABC News Friday. The cops have been transported to a nearby hospital and are expected to be OK, police said.

Additional details about the suspect, the officers’ injuries and the shootings were not immediately available.

A number of schools in the area were closed Friday morning, and some residents were told to shelter in place while police led a manhunt for the suspect this morning.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan said in a statement Friday she was “thankful for the bravery and service” of the two officers shot Friday morning, saying that they “courageously put their lives on the lines … as all of our public safety officers do every day, to protect their fellow citizens and to keep our communities and our state safe.”

Hassan said she has spoken with both officers and that she’s “grateful that they are expected to recover.”

“My thoughts are with them and their families, and I join all Granite Staters in wishing them a speedy and full recovery,” she added.
