Naples police shooting

NAPLES, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Officials say two men are dead and a third wounded after two shooting scenes in the Lakes Region area Sunday morning.

Spokesperson for Maine Public Safety Steve McCausland said 59-year-old Norman Strobel was shot and killed after exchanging gunfire with Cumberland County Sheriff's Deputies at a Songo School Road mobile home.

According to officials, the incident began when Strobel allegedly pounded on the door of a camp on Winifred Lane in Casco and identified himself as a Cumberland County Sheriff's deputy.

When two residents came to the window, Strobel allegedly fired shots through the window. One man was shot four times and is being treated at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

A woman escaped the shooting uninjured.

Officials say Strobel then called his ex-girlfriend to admit he was involved in the shooting. After pinging his phone, law enforcement was led to a mobile home on Songo School Road in Naples, according to McCausland. There they found an individual sitting in a chair who appeared to have been shot.

Deputies entered the home to provide aid believing the man was Strobel. Instead they were met with gunfire. Deputies shot and killed Strobel in the shootout.

No deputies were injured. State Police and the Maine Attorney General's Office are now investigating.
