Police searched all over Maine for the alleged shooter

  • The exact number of people hurt by gunfire is still unknown.
  • 40-year-old Robert Card has been designated by the Lewiston Police Department.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has increased the number of shooting incidents in the US.

More than fifty to sixty people have been injured. The exact number of people hurt by gunfire is still unknown.

About the shootings, 40-year-old Robert Card has been designated by the Lewiston Police Department as “a person of interest.” Card should be “considered armed and dangerous,” according to the police.

Alleged shooter

At approximately 7:00 p.m. local time, a shooting spree occurred at a Walmart distribution center, a nearby bar, and a bowling alley. Both Maine Governor Janet Mills and US President Joe Biden have been notified of the incident.

The gunman opened fire at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, in May 2022, killing 19 students and two teachers. According to Reuters, which referenced data from the Gun Violence Archive, the shooting is the deadliest mass shooting in American history since at least that incident.

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has increased the number of shooting incidents in the US where four or more people were shot. According to data from the archive, at least 647 of these incidents were reported in 2022.

According to Reuters, the gun safety advocacy group Brady said in a statement that the state of Maine lacks several key types of gun safety laws, such as universal background checks, assault weapon regulations, and “red flag” laws that permit law enforcement to temporarily disarm individuals who are legally deemed dangerous.

The Lewiston area’s schools have declared they will be closed on Thursday. Though not always accurate, information moves fast. Kindly stay put or find another safe location. The promise made by Lewiston Public Schools is to notify its students of any updates or upcoming actions.

When a witness in Lewiston, Maine, heard roughly ten shots, she initially believed that balloons were popping. But then he realized he had a weapon in his hand. Regarding the mass shootings, Robert Card, a US Army Reserve firearms instructor, is a person of interest.

The card is being sought after by hundreds of police officers, according to Maine Public Safety Commissioner Mike Sauschuck. Card has a criminal past that includes domestic abuse. All ages, including teenagers, were among those who witnessed the shootings.
