Statement regarding shooting incident of March 11, 2012

The Town of Lamoine is saddened to hear of the events on March 11, 2012 here that left one person dead and three wounded. An incident such as this is contrary to the neighborly and rural character of our community Our sympathies are extended to the families of the parties involved.

The Maine State Police are conducting the investigation, and we are greatly impressed by the swift response of the many police and public safety agencies involved in the initial reports of the incident and the subsequent investigation. We have every confidence in the ability of the State Police to do their jobs, and ask that our citizens cooperate with the investigation and respect the decisions and the release of information that is appropriate in this matter. It is heartening to know that the response of the appropriate agencies has been tremendous. It is our understanding that the general public is not in any more danger than it was prior to the incident.
