Authorities are searching for an active shooter suspect named Robert Card, 40, who they say shot and killed at least 18 people and left at least 13 more injured in Lewiston, Maine, on the evening of Wednesday, October 25, 2023, according to the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office.

Card was found deceased of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on October 27, 2023, the Associated Press reported.

Media had initially reported more casualties but officials said in a press conference on the morning of Thursday, October 26, that 15 people were found dead of apparent gunshot wounds at two locations, and three additional victims died after being transported to the hospital.

Authorities said Thursday morning an arrest warrant had been issued for Card on eight counts of murder; only eight victims had been identified at the time of the press conference, but they said more charges are expected.

The shootings spanned two locations: A bowling alley, and bar and grille, authorities confirmed on Thursday. The scanner reports initially said police were also clearing a Walmart distribution center, but a Walmart spokesperson later told the Sun Journal that no shooting occurred there.
