LEE, Maine (July 17, 2015) — State police say a former convict shot five people, two of them fatally, during a rampage across several northern Maine towns before being captured.
They say a man was assaulted and guns were stolen before the shootings began early Friday in three different communities. Police also believe the suspect set fire to a barn Thursday night.
Investigators say 35-year-old Anthony Lord was arrested without incident Friday at a family member’s home in Houlton. They say a woman who was with him wasn’t harmed.
Police say Lord faces murder charges. They are searching for a motive for the shootings that left 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle Hewitt dead. Two other men and a woman were injured.
Lord has a criminal record that includes convictions for a sex crime, domestic assault, criminal threatening and assault.
