Police find note at home of mass shooting suspect Robert Card

Police hunting the prime suspect in the mass shooting that occurred in Lewiston, Maine earlier this week found a chilling note in his home, according to a new update.

Robert Card is accused of taking the lives of 18 people on Wednesday night – a figure that may increase given that many more were injured and a number of individuals remain in critical condition.

As per tragic reports, the gunman opened fire at two separate locations before disappearing. Authorities have been searching for him ever since, and the investigation’s latest find is an unsettling one indeed.

Card, a US Army reservist, sparked concern among military officials in mid-July while training at the US Military Academy at West Point. The 40-year-old is said to have exhibited erratic behavior, while other reports suggest that he had been committed to a mental health facility for two weeks this summer.

Sources have also claimed that Card threatened to carry out a shooting at a military training base in Saco, Maine.

Ultimately it was Maine where Card is suspected of striking. On Wednesday night, authorities responded to mass shootings at a restaurant and a bowling alley – 10 minutes apart from each other by car – in the city of Lewiston.

At the time of writing there is an arrest warrant out for Card on eight counts of murder; one for each person killed that has been identified.

Last night (Thursday), a concentration of police forces amassed outside the home of Card’s brother in Bowdoin, a town east of Lewiston. Believing the suspect to be hiding in the house, authorities surrounded the property and could be heard screaming: “Robert Card, you’re under arrest. We know you’re inside. Come out with your hands up. We don’t want anyone to get hurt.”

It has since been reported that Card wasn’t present inside the home.

As such the manhunt continues, but new information suggests that police have found a note in Card’s home indicating that he is “looking for his ex.”

Multiple reports say that authorities executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home, and hope that the note will help them locate Card, whose current whereabouts is unknown.

Naturally, the hunt for Card, described by former Army friends as a trained marksman and skilled outdoorsman, is one that poses several challenges.

Retired NYPD chief Robert Louden described the effort as being “like a spider’s web.”

Speaking to NBC, Louden said:

“From that parking area where he dumped his scar there’s four distinct possibilities.

“He killed himself. He got on a boat and went down that little river that’s there.”

He continued: “He went into another car or motorcycle or something that was waiting for him.

“Or there’s a hiking trail. He could be in the woods someplace.

“And so it’s like a spider’s web going out — and you’ve got to follow all those pieces of the web.”

Our thoughts go out to the loved ones of those who lost their lives or were injured in this atrocity.
