UPDATE: State Police have identified the man shot and killed inside his mobile home in Naples Sunday as 55-year-old Richard Diekema. The shooter, Norman Strobel, had moved into the mobile home recently. The investigation in both shootings is ongoing.

The two deputies involved, Dep. Feeney and Dep. Brill, are currently on leave pending the investigation.

NAPLES, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Officials say two men are dead and a third wounded after two shooting scenes in the Lakes Region area Sunday morning.

Spokesperson for Maine Public Safety Steve McCausland said 59-year-old Norman Strobel was shot and killed after exchanging gunfire with Cumberland County Sheriff's Deputies at a Songo School Road mobile home.

According to officials, the incident began when Strobel allegedly pounded on the door of a camp on Winifred Lane in Casco and identified himself as a Cumberland County Sheriff's deputy.

When two residents came to the window, Strobel allegedly fired shots through the window. Jason Almeida was shot four times and is being treated at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

His girlfriend, Alyssa Goulet, escaped the shooting uninjured.

Officials say Strobel then called his ex-girlfriend, Sandra Goulet, to admit he was involved in the shooting. Sandra is Alyssa's mother. Police say Sandra had a restraining order against Strobel.

After pinging Strobel's phone, law enforcement was led to a mobile home on Songo School Road in Naples, according to McCausland. There they found an individual sitting in a chair who appeared to have been shot. 

Deputies entered the home to provide aid believing the man was Strobel. Instead they were met with gunfire. Deputies shot and killed Strobel in the shootout. 

According to public records from the Rhode Island Criminal Justice Department, Strobel had a long rap sheet. He had previously been convicted of domestic assault, sexual assault, robbery, and conspiracy.

Police say Strobel had threatened Sandra Goulet and her family before. Earlier in the week, officials say, Strobel had stolen Sandra's two dogs. The dogs were found safe in the mobile home today.

No deputies were injured. State Police and the Maine Attorney General's Office are now investigating.
