Manchester Man Takes Plea Deal for Shooting at Police Officer and Landlord

A Manchester man who shot at a police officer and his landlord last year has taken a plea deal.

34-year old Kenneth Noble was set to stand trial last week, but he accepted a plea agreement instead.

Manchester Police were called to Noble’s apartment at 308 ½ North Brewer Street in Manchester on February 20th, 2020. The landlord had requested assistance from police to enter the apartment to make repairs. As the landlord entered the apartment, Noble fired a gun, nearly striking his landlord in the head. The police officer, Captain Rick Carnicle, advanced his position and Noble fired the gun in his direction, with Carnicle returning gunfire in self-defense. No one was injured during the gunfire exchange.

Noble was charged with two felony counts of Attempted Murder, but he recently accepted a plea deal – pleading guilty instead to two felony counts of Intimidation with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault on a Peace Officer by Use or Display of a Dangerous Weapon.

Noble remains in custody at the Delaware County Jail. His sentencing has been set for May 4th.
