Robert Card manhunt: Maine police calling on public for tips after at least 18 killed in mass shooting

As the manhunt in Maine intensifies for Robert Card, a suspect in a mass shooting at two locations in Lewiston, state and local authorities are asking the public for tips to help lead to his capture.

Card, 40, is being sought after at least 18 people were killed and 13 more were wounded in shootings at Schemengees Bar and Grille and Just in Time Bowling, Maine Gov. Janet Mills and law enforcement officials said at a Thursday morning press conference.

Communities across the state remain under shelter-in-place advisories, while schools and college campuses have closed and canceled classes Thursday. Authorities warned the public that Card is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.

Here is how you can contact authorities with information about Card or the shooting:

“The FBI Boston Division continues to coordinate with our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners in Maine, and we stand ready to assist with any available resources they need, including evidence response, investigative and tactical support, as well as victim assistance. We continue to urge the public to remain vigilant and report any and all suspicious activity and/or individuals to law enforcement immediately. As this situation is still very fluid, we have no further comment at this time and will refer you to the Maine State Police,” the bureau wrote.
