ABC News reports that, “A bowling alley in Lewiston, Maine came under fire Wednesday evening. There are additional reports of shots fired at a local bar and a Walmart distribution center.”
More than ten people are dead and dozens more have been injured, law enforcement sources who have been briefed on the shooting confirmed to ABC News.
Current reports are that the shooter is still at large.
We give the same caution in all of these situations…early reports are frequently hurried, confused, incomplete, wrong, or downright biased.
More when the situation becomes clearer.

UPDATE: Latest reports are that at least 16 are dead in a Lewiston, Maine shooting with scores more injured. The suspect has been identified by police as 40-year-old Bowdoin resident Robert Card, a firearm instructor and National Guard member who had been committed earlier this summer as a result of mental health problems.
Maine state police have advised Bowdoin residents to shelter in place.
We are expanding the shelter in place advisory and school closings to include the town of Bowdoin. Please stay inside your homes while more than 100 investigators, both local and federal work to locate Robert Card who is a person of interest in the Lewiston shootings. A news conference is scheduled at 10:30 am today at Lewiston City Hall. Please tune into your local TV station’s social media and or websites for live streams.
10/26 UPDATE: Once again, the Lewiston shooting illustrates the unreliable nature of early media reports in these breaking news situations. Maine Governor Janet Mills announced at a press conference this morning that 18 people have been killed and 13 more injured.
BREAKING: At least 18 people dead in Maine shooting rampage and 13 others injured, governor says.
