Maine State Police closed off Route 11 in Belgrade late Friday night after what officials say was an officer-involved shooting.

BELGRADE, Maine — One man was killed and his son was injured after exchanging gunfire with police, according to the Maine attorney general’s office.

Roger Bubar, 65, was killed and Scott Bubar, 40, was wounded.

According to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the elder Bubar died from gunshot wounds. The younger Bubar is recovering in the hospital from a single gunshot wound.

The Maine attorney general’s office said Sgt. Jacob Pierce with Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office shot back after being fired upon outside Roger Bubar’s home on Oakland Road in Belgrade early Saturday morning while responding to a disturbance call at that residence.

John Short lives just across the street from where the shooting happened.

He said earlier that night two men were in the driveway revving an engine, and one man hit the mobile home.

He later heard a gunshot and police arrived on scene.

“They started shooting at the cop, I mean at the sheriff, and they did what they had to do,” Short said.

Officials said no officers or neighbors were hurt.

The attorney general’s office is conducting the investigation as is protocol for any officer-involved shooting.
