LAMOINE, Maine (AP) - Maine State Police investigators are back at the scene of a double homicide in Lamoine, trying to determine what caused 27-year-old Leon Tilden to shoot his father and uncle.
Spokesman Steve McCausland of the state Public Safety Department said Wednesday that investigators are gathering evidence where the shootings took place early Tuesday. The victims were identified as Tilden's father, Robert Tilden, and his uncle, Russell Pinkham, who were both 50. McCausland says the state medical examiner's office will conduct a review as police try to piece together what sparked the shootings.
After the shootings, Leon Tilden was fatally wounded during an armed confrontation with troopers following a manhunt. The state attorney general's office is investigating the use of deadly force, which is standard practice in police shootings.
