UPDATE: Sources say, Maine mass shooter found deceased.
A manhunt is underway for 40-year-old Robert Card, an active shooter who opened fire at two businesses in Lewiston, Maine Wednesday evening.
According to officials, Robert Card, a U.S. Army Reserve member and certified firearms instructor, entered a bowling alley and restaurant / bar and opened fire around 7 p.m.
The Central Maine Medical Center has issued a statement saying they are, “reacting to a mass casualty, mass shooting event.”
18 people have died and 13 others are injured, 3 critically. Officials say 7 were killed at the bowling alley and 8 were killed at the bar.
Card fled both scenes in a 2013 White Subaru Outback which was later located after it was abandoned.
According to a defense official, Card, who was deployed to Camp Smith Training Center over the summer, was “behaving erratically” on July 17th. Out of concern for his safety, law enforcement was contacted and he was taken to Keller Army Community Hospital at the United States Military Academy for medical evaluation.
His whereabouts are still unknown at this time. Lewiston, Lisbon, and Bowdoin are currently under a stay at home order. Most businesses, schools, and government offices in the state have been closed Thursday.
