ROCKLAND, Maine — A 19-year-old St. George man died from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound around 9 p.m. Sunday, according to police reports.

Rockland police received reports of multiple shots fired in the Brewster Street area.

Sgt. Don Finnegan said other people were in the area, but that there were no other reported injuries. Finnegan said the man’s name could not be released because the next of kin had not yet been notified.

Details about the shooting also were not being released Monday.

The case remains under investigation.
