Police are searching for a suspect after at least 18 people were killed in a mass shooting in Maine on October 27, 2023. The shooting took place at a Walmart store in the town of Lewiston.
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, black jeans, and a black baseball cap. He is considered armed and dangerous.
The shooting began at approximately 10:30 a.m. local time. The suspect entered the store and opened fire on customers and employees. He then fled the scene in a vehicle.
Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect or his whereabouts to contact them immediately.
The shooting is the deadliest mass shooting in Maine history. It is also the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since May 2022, when 21 people were killed at a school in Uvalde, Texas.
The shooting has reignited the debate over gun control in the United States. Many people are calling for stricter gun laws in order to prevent future mass shootings. Others argue that stricter gun laws will not prevent mass shootings and that the focus should be on addressing mental health issues.
The shooting is a tragedy and a reminder of the need to address the problem of gun violence in the United States.
