NASHUA - A 35-year-old Hudson, N.H., man was shot to death and a 32-year-old Nashua woman he was with is hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds after a man opened fire on Merrimack Street in Nashua and then killed himself four hours later, according to police.

Nashua police said they were called to the area outside of 14 Merrimack St., Friday about 4:15 p.m., for a report of a shooting.

Officers arrived and found 35-year-old Andres Garcia, of Hudson, and Mireily Rodriguez-Torres, 32, of Nashua, both suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, according to police. Both were taken to Boston-area trauma centers.

Garcia succumbed to his injuries Saturday about 2 a.m. Rodriguez-Torres remains hospitalized but is expected to survive, according to police.

Police say they developed information after the shooting indicating that Carlos Alago-Collazo, 34, of Nashua, was believed to be the shooter.

"He and the female victim had been involved in a long-term relationship and had two children together," police wrote in a prepared statement.

Police used Alago-Collazo's cell phone to track his location Friday night. Alago-Collazo was found about 8:40 p.m., dead of an apparent suicide in a car parked at 626 Essex St., in Lawrence, according to police. Police said no one else was injured during the incident in Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will perform autopsies on Garcia and Alago-Collazo, according to police.


Nashua Police continue to investigate the incident with the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office. The attorney general's office said in a prepared statement that investigators do not expect to release more information until next week.
