    According to reports, at least 22 individuals were killed in multiple shootings in the US state of Maine late Wednesday.

    Maine State Police has issued a warning on a “active shooter” incident in Lewiston.

    A restaurant and a bowling alley were among the targets of the shooter.

    According to NBC News, 50 to 60 people were injured.

    The Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office released photos of a person equipped with an assault rifle.

    Meanwhile, Lewiston issued a shelter-in-place order and listed three places under investigation by police.

    The suspect is still at large, and a manhunt is continuing.

    In addition, the Lewiston Police Department listed 40-year-old Robert Card as a “person of interest” in the shootings.

    Card “should be regarded as armed and dangerous.” “If you know where he is, please contact law enforcement,” the department urged.

    According to the White House, President Joe Biden was briefed and pledged full assistance in the aftermath of “this horrific attack” during a call with Maine Governor Janet Mills, Senators Angus King and Susan Collins, and Congressman Jared Golden.

    Lewiston public schools will be closed on Thursday.

     

    “At the moment, there are many unknowns.” “Information moves quickly but not always accurately,” said Lewiston Public Schools Superintendent Jake Langlais.

    “Please continue to shelter in place or get to safety.”
