Officer Ralph Miller was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a noise complaint involving a drunk teenager at a home on Hall Street.

As the officers approached the house the teenager fired a rifle through the screen door, striking Officer Miller in the chest.

The suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to 50 years to life in prison. He was denied parole in October 2011. He will be eligible for parole again in 2016.

Officer Miller had served with the Manchester Police Department for just over one year. He is survived by his expectant wife and child.
