Blood drive held in honor of wounded NH officer
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- A blood drive is being held Saturday in honor of a Manchester, N.H., police officer who was shot and wounded earlier this month.
Officer Dan Doherty is recovering after being shot five times during a pursuit March 28. Twenty-two-year-old Myles Webster of Litchfield has been charged with attempted murder.
The Manchester Policeman's Wives Association approached the American Red Cross about holding a blood drive in Doherty's honor. The drive is being held from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at McDonough Elementary School in Manchester.
