Police: Not Yet Clear If Central Maine Deadly Shooting Was Criminal
WEST GARDINER, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine say they have interviewed the person who shot and killed a man outside a party over the weekend, but have not yet determined if anyone will be charged with a crime.
Forty-one-year-old James Haskell was found dead outside a home in West Gardiner early Saturday.
Police say they interviewed a number of people at the party, including the person who fired the shots.
Investigators are awaiting the results of an autopsy before determining the next step in the case.
Haskell’s stepmother told WCSH-TV that he had struggled with drugs, legal issues and mental illness. She said she had not seen him recently and believed he was trying to get life his together.
