PORTLAND, Maine — Portland police are appealing to the public for help in the unsolved killing of a Mercy Hospital security guard who was fatally shot in the back in 2008 in the hospital’s parking lot.
Police think 27-year-old James Angelo was killed by a stray bullet in an exchange of gunfire between two other men in the early morning hours of Sept. 7 in the parking lot while returning from a break.
Assistant Police Chief Michael Sauschuck and Mercy Hospital CEO Eileen Skinner held a press conference Wednesday hoping to keep the case fresh in the public’s mind.
Sauschuck said police believe somebody in the community knows who shot Angelo. A $30,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and indictment of whoever was responsible.
