LEBANON, Maine — A shooting is reported to have occurred at a residence on Upper Guinea Road around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, with reports of a man suffering a gunshot wound to his chest.

Assistant Lebanon Rescue Chief Jason Cole said a Lebanon ambulance with paramedics was on scene assisting the York County Sheriff’s Department.

Cole did not know whether there had been multiple gunshots or if there were multiple people involved or if anyone had been seriously injured or killed. He did note that it was not a suicide attempt and that the home was an active crime scene.

Cole wrote in an email to the press at 9:26 p.m. that “the incident is a law enforcement incident.”

Foster’s representatives were immediately told to leave when they arrived on scene. The tan raised ranch-style home on the poorly lighted section of Upper Guinea Road had several police cruisers parked out front with three officers outside.

More officers could be seen inside the home.

Chief Deputy William King of the Sheriff’s Department was unavailable for comment at press time Tuesday night.
