HOOKSETT, N.H. — Authorities are investigating what led to an early morning shooting outside a Hooksett, N.H., gas station.

WMUR-TV reports that police were called to the Irving gas station around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators believe the victim was shot in the chest in a car and then went into the gas station for help. The man was found in the doorway of the station and was taken to the hospital, where he was in stable condition.

A short time later, police in Salem stopped a minivan that was speeding without its headlights on and arrested Orlando Quintana of Lynn, Mass., and Ana Koufus, of Revere, Mass.

Quintana was arraigned on a first-degree assault charge and held on $100,000 bail. Koufus was charged with hindering apprehension and was held on $25,000 bail.
