Nationwide Manhunt Underway For Suspect In Deadly Maine Shooting

Maine Police have declared a manhunt for a man who is suspected to be a person of interest in a series of mass shootings in Lewiston, Maine that left multiple casualties. 

According to Maine Public Safety Commissioner Mike Sauschuck, 40-year-old Robert Card of Bowdoin, Maine, should be considered armed and dangerous, and his car had been found. 

In a Facebook post, the Lewiston Police Department released what appeared to be a driver’s license picture of Card. 

He appears to be the same person shown in surveillance images wearing a brown sweatshirt and carrying an AR-style long gun as he entered a bowling alley in an earlier photo released by authorities.

The Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston said it had been responding to a “mass casualty, mass shooter event,” as there are a lot of patients. 

Schemengees Bar and Grille, and Sparetime Recreation, a bowling alley, two locations where the mass shootings seemed to have taken place have also posted about the incident. 

Schemengees Bar and Grille posted on their Facebook page: “My heart is crushed. I am at a loss for words. In a split second, your world gets turned upside down for no good reason. We lost great people in this community. How can we make any sense of this? Sending out prayers to everyone.”

Lewiston Mayor Carl Sheline said in a statement, “I am heartbroken for our city and our people. Lewiston is known for our strength and grit and we will need both in the days to come.”

Sauschuck said there are hundreds of police officers working around the state of Maine.

In a Facebook post, the city of Lewiston said that all municipal buildings there will be closed Thursday. The post said, “This includes City Hall, 27 Pine Street, Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon Street, and the Armory, 65 Central Avenue. Programs, events, or early voting at City Hall have been canceled for tomorrow. Non-emergency personnel should stay at home tomorrow too.”

Lewiston is the second-largest city in Maine, with a population of about 40,000 people, and is about 40 miles from Portland.
