Search for Motives in Maine
Officials in Maine continued to search for evidence of a motive in a mass shooting that left 18 people dead and 13 others injured. The 40-year-old shooter reportedly died by suicide after opening fire at a bowling alley in the city of Lewiston before attacking a nearby restaurant.
Family members said the gunman had been suffering mental health issues in recent months, including undergoing inpatient psychiatric treatment. An Army reservist, he was said to have been reported to military leadership as recently as July over erratic behavior. Police say the primary weapon used was a semi-automatic rifle purchased legally.
