PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Police arrested Jomo White, 31, of Atlanta, Georgia, Tuesday morning without incident in connection with a shooting that took place the day before on Northern Road.
White was located Tuesday morning at a Presque Isle residence, police said Tuesday afternoon.
Police had issued arrest warrants Monday for White and for Jason Alexander, 44, of Blaine after a 911 call around 6 a.m. indicated a man had been shot on the Northern Road near Skyway Industrial Park. Both men were considered armed and dangerous. The manhunt continues for Alexander.
The victim was transported to AR Gould Hospital for treatment on Monday but was later taken by helicopter to Northern Light Health in Bangor. He remains in critical condition after surgery, according to police.
The Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit was notified Monday due to the seriousness of the injuries and possible loss of life, and the Maine State Police Evidence Response Team processed the crime scene, police said.
Northern Maine Community College and Maine School Administrative District 1 canceled classes Monday, and local residents were urged to remain indoors while authorities investigated the incident.
“This appears to be an isolated incident with no threat to the community,” Kelly said Monday afternoon. “Area businesses and schools are, however, either on lockdown or closed until further notice as the gunman has not yet been located.”
