PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire (AP) -- Several police officers were shot and wounded in New Hampshire Thursday night, when they went to serve a warrant Thursday, officials said, but it was not known how many or how badly they were hurt.

The Portsmouth Herald reported that state police and officers from at least four departments responded to a home on Post Road in the small seacoast community of Greenland, about five miles from Portsmouth.

The newspaper reported police first responded after an emergency call announced an officer-involved shooting around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police surrounded the neighborhood and remained there hours later. It was not clear where the suspected shooter was.

"This is a tragic incident, and my thoughts and prayers are with the officers involved and their families," said Gov. John Lynch, who first monitored the situation from Concord and then was en route to Portsmouth Regional Hospital, where the officers were taken.
