Robert Card, the suspect in Wednesday night’s mass shootings in Lewiston, Maine has been found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Card, 40, was found dead in the woods near Lisbon in an area near a recycling center where he previously worked. He was dressed in the same clothes he had on during the massacre on Wednesday.
The news comes after a two-day manhunt that prompted shelter-in-place-orders and the shutdown of schools and businesses as authorities searched for him, according to CNN.
Card killed at least 18 people and wounded 13 others at two locations in Lewiston: a bowling alley where a children’s league was taking place and a local bar.
Card, who was trained as a firearms instructor at a U.S. Army Reserve, used a semi-automatic assault-style rifle to carry out the attack.
His motives are unclear, but according to reports he struggled with mental health issues. Over the summer, Card’s military commanders sent him to receive inpatient psychiatric treatment after they became concerned about threats he made to the base and his claims that he was hearing voices.
