Canadian Authorities Monitoring Manhunt in Maine After Mass Shooting

Police in New Brunswick and Canadian border officials are closely monitoring the manhunt in Maine as police search for a suspect in connection to a mass shooting. The shootings took place at a bar and bowling alley in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday evening, resulting in a death toll ranging from 16 to 22, with numerous others injured. Robert R. Card, 40, has been identified as a person of interest in the case.

The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) is working in collaboration with Canadian and U.S. law enforcement to ensure the safety and security of Canadians and protect Canada’s borders. They have issued an “Armed & Dangerous – Firearms lookout” to alert border officers of the high-risk situation. However, all points of entry remain open.

The New Brunswick RCMP are also monitoring the situation and are collaborating with law enforcement partners. Woodstock Police Chief Gary Forward assured that all agencies are aware and working together in the event of any potential outcome in the province.

There are multiple border crossings between Maine and Quebec, including the Armstrong-Jackman, Ste-Aurélie, and Coburn Gore-Woburn crossings. Each crossing is about three to four hours away from Lewiston, Maine.

Quebec Premier François Legault expressed his condolences and described the shooting as an unspeakable sorrow. He extended his thoughts to the victim’s families and residents of Lewiston.

The investigation is ongoing, and more information will be provided in due course.
