PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Police are planning a memorial run to honor the New Hampshire chief who was shot to death while serving a warrant at the home of a suspected drug dealer in Greenland.

Stephen DuBois, deputy chief in Portsmouth, said the idea for the run on Sunday, April 29, came from an officer who wanted to honor fallen Greenland Chief Michael Maloney.

The Portsmouth Herald says the 5.4-mile run, dubbed “The Chief Maloney Memorial Run,” will kick off at the Portsmouth Police Department and end at the police station in Greenland.

Maloney was shot in the head while trying to help four drug task officers who were wounded on April 12. The home’s occupant, Cullen Mutrie, and a female companion from Maine died in a murder-suicide.
