WINDHAM, Maine — A 66-year-old Windham man was shot and killed Saturday morning after he displayed a gun and refused to drop it.

The man who died was Stephen McKenney, said Brian MacMaster of the Maine Attorney General’s Office.

MacMaster said Sunday morning that the AG’s office will investigate this shooting as it does all officer-involved shootings in the state.

According to a news release from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, the Windham Police Department responded to a complaint shortly after 6 a.m. Saturday of a suicidal male on Quartz Circle in Windham. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist in the investigation. During the course of the initial investigation the subject displayed a firearm and was shot by police.

Deputy Nicholas Mangino fired the shot, according to a news release issued Sunday by Sheriff Kevin Joyce. Mangino has been a deputy at the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office for nearly two years.

The incident is currently under investigation by the Windham Police Department, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and the Maine State Police at the direction of the Maine Attorney General’s Office.

An autopsy on McKenney was planned for Sunday, MacMaster said.
