February 9, 2018

READING, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have identified the man who was shot and killed by police in Reading earlier this month.

The Middlesex District Attorney announced Friday the man was 43-year-old Alan Greenough of Reading. No new details of the case were revealed and the matter remains under investigation.

The district attorney’s office said last week that Reading Police responded to a residence on Main Street on Feb. 3 for a report of an alleged assault involving the Greenough and a household member.

The office says when police arrived, the man fled. A Reading officer found him and fired shots, wounding Greenough, who later died at Lahey Hospital.

Officers had responded to the same house the day before for a reported altercation involving the same man, who fled when police arrived.
