Armed Suspect in Custody After Shooting Four People in Maine

State police say a former convict sought in the shootings of four people in three northern Maine communities has been taken into custody. Police said Friday that 35-year-old Anthony Lord was arrested in Houlton. They added that a woman being held with him is safe. Dozens of law enforcement officers were searching for Lord, who is believed to have stolen a logging truck before the overnight shootings in the towns of Lee, Benedicta and Silver Ridge. Police didn't identify the victims or provide information about their conditions. They say Lord has a criminal record that includes convictions for domestic assault, criminal threatening and assault. He's also on the state's sex-offender registry.
