Calais, Maine

Baby, mother hurt in shooting


State police say a shooting in the eastern Maine town of Calais left one man dead and a woman and baby wounded. Police said the shooting Wednesday evening was an act of domestic violence. Two officers shot and killed Daniel Pinney, 26, shortly after arriving at a home on Main Street where Pinney had shot Megan Sherrard, 21, and their 6-week-old son, Luca, police said. The woman was fleeing with her son when the officers arrived. Sherrard is undergoing treatment for serious gunshot wounds at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The baby also was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot. A police officer was grazed by a bullet but is expected to make a full recovery. Investigators said Sherrard had a doctor’s appointment for the baby, but never showed up. Her car was found in the doctor’s parking lot in Calais by her father on Wednesday afternoon. He contacted police because he was concerned for her safety.
