The Maine Wardens Service needs the public’s help to identify two men who wardens say fled the scene of a hunting related shooting in Gorham on Monday morning.

Wardens say a 55-year-old Casco man was shot in the face with birdshot while hunting pheasant off Mosher Road, also known as Route 237, in Gorham around 8 a.m.

The incident took place across the road from Shaw Bros. Construction.

Wardens say the victim had a brief interaction with two men after he was shot.

The two men, who were not identified, quickly fled the area.

Wardens say one of the suspects is described as tall man with black hair, glasses and possibly in his 30s. The other man is average height, heavy set with a dirty blonde mustache possibly in his 40s.

Witnesses also reportedly described the vehicle as a dark green, early 2000’s 4×4 Toyota two-door pickup, extended cab with no cap on the bed.

Wardens say it was described as being bigger than a Tacoma, possibly the size of an older Toyota T100 or Tundra.

The victim suffered injuries not considered life-threatening and is being treated at Bridgton Hospital.

If you have any information, please dispatchers in Gray at 207-657-3030.
