Maine Hospital Placed on Partial Lockdown During Shooting Investigation

A Maine hospital was put on partial lockdown Tuesday night after receiving two shooting victims at their emergency room.

WCSH-TV reported that the lockdown at Millinocket Regional Hospital was lifted at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The hospital's Vice President of Human Resources, Lisa Arsenault, said she did not have the names of the victims who had been taken to the hospital or their conditions. The victims, however, had been transported to a different hospital.

Meanwhile, police had been at the scene of a shooting at a home on Main Street in Millinocket where several neighbors told WCSH-TV that a couple who lived at the home was going through a divorce.

Authorities would not say if anyone was in custody in connection with the shooting. Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland would only confirm that there had been some sort of incident.
