Washington Correspondent

Police have advised residents in southern Maine to stay home and lock their doors – as hundreds of police hunt for a gunman who shot dead 18 people and injured 13 others.

Officers have named 40 year old Robert Card as a person of interest, describing him as armed and dangerous. The shootings happened at a bowling alley and a bar in the small city of Lewiston, and President Biden has ordered flags to fly at half mast in memory of the victims.
