WOODLAND, Maine — Investigators with the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department met Wednesday afternoon with District Attorney Todd Collins to discuss the circumstances surrounding a home invasion and burglary Saturday in which the intruder was shot.
Sheriff Jim Madore said that police are reluctant to release more information about the incident at the house on New Sweden Road, including the names of those involved, at this time.
“We want to make sure we have all of our T’s crossed and our I’s dotted before we release anything more,” he said Wednesday before the meeting. No more information was released after the meeting.
While the shooting took place Saturday, police did not release any details until this week.
According to the department, a homeowner in Woodland called 911 on Saturday to report that someone had kicked in the door to his home.
The suspect entered the home and was shot.
He was taken to Cary Medical Center in Caribou and then to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.
Madore said Wednesday that he believed the man was in stable condition. Police have not yet interviewed him, but continue to conduct interviews with potential witnesses, the sheriff said.
Sheriff’s Department Detective Ross McQuade is the primary investigator.
