Three people were pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital.
A manhunt is underway for the accused gunman, 40-year-old Robert Card. Maine State Police Col. William Ross said police have issued an arrest warrant for Card on eight counts of murder. More charges will be added when the other 10 victims are identified, Ross said.
Card was recently fitted for high-powered hearing aids, and he began hearing voices around that time, a family member told NBC News. The family member said Card likely had severe hearing loss due to being around gunfire all the time.
