PD: Home Intruder Continues Destruction After Being Shot

Shad Hembree

Police say a man was shot while trying to break through a front door of a neighbor's apartment in Richmond, Maine. 

Police Chief Scott MacMaster says the victim, 42-year-old Shad Hembree, was wrestled out of the apartment and then shot when he broke the glass on the French-style door to regain entry. 

MacMaster said the injured Hembree then smashed the windows of the victim's vehicle before being taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The chief identified the gunman as 28-year-old Trevor Whitney, a military veteran. The chief said Whitney was not charged because he fired in self-defense.
