Months before the deadly attacks, Card, a US Army reservist, was reportedly held in a mental facility for weeks over the summer. He was taken by police in July for evaluation at the urging of concerned military officials. In the same vein, Karen Card, the suspect’s sister-in-law, revealed to The Daily Beast that “in the past year, he had an acute episode of mental health, and it’s been a struggle.” Since his release from the facility, she added, “things have kind of gone downhill recently.”
At almost 7pm on Wednesday evening, gunfire occurred at Just-in-Time Recreation, a bowling alley located on Mollison Way in Lewiston, Maine.
At 7:08 PM, several emergency calls were made reporting a gunman at Schemengees Bar and Grill located on Lincoln Street, which is only four miles away from the bowling alley.
At approximately 8pm, the Maine State Police advised Lewiston residents to remain indoors and secure their doors. The department stated that law enforcement is currently conducting investigations at several areas.
At 8:06 PM, the police shared a picture of the person who fired the weapon with the press. An hour and a half later, the Lewiston Police Department received a call identifying the individual in the photos as Card.
At 9:56pm, two hours after the initial report, state police officers announced that they had discovered a “vehicle of interest” at Pejepscot Boat Launch in Lisbon. This led to the extension of the shelter-in-place advisory to include Lisbon. The Lewiston Police shared a picture on Wednesday night of a white Subaru, which was registered to Card according to police.
The police did not locate Card until 7:45pm on Friday.
