Patrolman Jeremy Charron was shot and killed while checking on a car which contained two sleeping men. While talking with one of the men the individual pulled out a gun, cursed at the officer, and shot him. Patrolman Charron returned fire until he collapsed, but none of the shots hit the suspect, though each hit the getaway vehicle. Both suspects escaped and drove north where they attempted to rob a convenience store. Officers arrived at the scene during the robbery and arrested the suspects following a brief shootout.

It is thought that the suspect believed that Patrolman Charron would learn that there was a warrant out for his arrest or that he would discover the suspect, who was a convicted felon, was in possession of a firearm. The suspect in Patrolman Charron's death plead guilty of capital murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Patrolman Charron had just returned from the funeral of Trooper Leslie Lord and Trooper Scott Phillips, of the New Hampshire State Police, before his shift started. He had only recently graduated from the police academy.

Patrolman Charron was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. American Legion Law Enforcement Post 122 was created in memory of Patrolman Charron.

Jeremy and I were close as brothers as we both started our careers in law enforcement. Countless days hanging out we developed a special kinship that remains a void today. This world was blessed to have such a capable young man who's love for his country and community remains a great example to all.
I miss you brother
