The Androscoggin County Sheriff's Office said the suspect remains at large and posted photos of him aiming a rifle at a bowling alley, asking the public for help identifying him.

The Lewiston Police Department also released a photo of a white 2013 Subaru Outback they are looking for in connection with the shooting. Officers were told not to approach the vehicle and form a perimeter around it.
