On October 25, 2023, a gunman killed 18 people and injured 13 others during a shooting spree at two locations in Lewiston, Maine, United States. The first mass shooting was at the Just-in-Time Recreation bowling alley, during a youth league event, and the second occurred minutes later at the Schemengees Bar & Grille Restaurant.
The Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office released a photograph of the suspect, 40-year-old Robert Card, and an intensive manhunt commenced. An arrest warrant was issued, citing eight counts of murder. On October 27, he was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound near a recycling center in a tractor trailer nearby Lisbon, where he had recently worked.
The shootings occurred on October 25, 2023, beginning at Just-In-Time Recreation, a Lewiston bowling alley, during a youth league event. The shooter used a semi-automatic rifle chambered in . 308 Winchester and equipped with an extended magazine and optic. Police received the first emergency calls at 6:56 p.m. EDT. Plainclothes officers using a nearby shooting range also heard the gunshots and responded. The first responding officers arrived at the scene within four minutes of the first call. Seven people were killed at this location.
Shortly after, at 7:08, a second shooting was reported at Schemengees Bar & Grille Restaurant, 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Just-In-Time. Officers arrived at the scene two minutes later. Eight people were killed at this location, seven of them inside the building and the eighth outside. Another three victims died later in a hospital.
At 8:06, the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office and Maine State Police alerted residents of an active shooter. The sheriff’s office also released images of Card inside the bowling alley with a “high-powered assault-style rifle“, as well as an image of his 2013 Subaru Outback, warning residents that the shooter was “armed and dangerous”.
The Central Maine Medical Center coordinated with local area hospitals to take in victims. Several were taken to the Maine Medical Center in Portland, the largest hospital in the state.
