U.S. Coast Guard Joins Search for Mass Shooting Suspect Robert Card in Maine

The U.S. Coast Guard has initiated a search operation in the Kennebec River, Maine, in pursuit of mass shooting suspect Robert Card. Card, believed to be armed and dangerous, owns property in the Lewiston area, as confirmed by a source with knowledge of the situation.

Coast Guard spokesperson Rob Simpson issued a statement, stating, “Currently, one response boat crew from Station Boothbay Harbor, and an Air Station Cape Cod HC-144 fixed-wing aircraft are assisting with patrols.”

In cooperation with authorities, the family of Robert Card has been providing insights into the troubled individual, corroborating earlier reports of mental health treatment, auditory hallucinations, and alleged threats to target a National Guard facility. Card’s sister informed investigators that she believed he may have been seeking an ex-girlfriend at the locations of the shootings, a bowling alley and a bar.

Law enforcement sources have disclosed that a firearm was recovered from Card’s abandoned vehicle, a white Subaru found on Wednesday night. The authorities are conducting tests and tracing to determine whether this firearm was used in the shootings. Card is considered a potential threat, and it is suspected that he may have access to other firearms.

Furthermore, investigators have uncovered a note at Card’s residence; however, details regarding its contents, length, or relevance to the investigation have not been disclosed by sources familiar with the case.
