Maine Mass Shooting Suspect Found Dead
October 27, 2023

The man suspected in a mass shooting in Maine has been found dead. Maine Governor Janet Mills confirmed the body of 40-year-old Robert Card was found in the woods near Lisbon Falls after officials searched for him for days.

Police believe he killed 18 people and injured 13 others after opening fire in a bowling alley and then a bar Wednesday night. A massive manhunt for Card covered hundreds of square miles and caused shelter-in-place orders to be issued for residents in the area. The search also forced the closure of some schools and businesses in the area. Officials say Mills died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A press conference is scheduled for Saturday morning to provide more details.
