LEBANON, Maine (AP) - Maine State Police say a New Hampshire couple has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a man who interrupted a burglary at his home last week in Lebanon.

Police say Ronald Bauer and Susan Guierrez, both 48 years old, were arrested Wednesday in Somersworth, N.H.

They are being held in New Hampshire on fugitive from justice charges.

Police say they will face elevated aggravated assault charges in Maine in connection with the shooting of Richard Potorski, who interrupted a burglary at his home on the afternoon of Jan. 8.

Potorski was shot by an intruder, who then fled in his SUV. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Maine State Police say the couple burglarized the home to feed their drug habit. Potorski's vehicle was found in Rochester, N.H.
