Two Lobstermen File Civil Lawsuits 

Two lobstermen involved in last week’s shooting on Maine’s remote Matinicus island have filed civil lawsuits that reveal new details about the shooting. Sixty-eight-year-old Vance Bunker has been charged with elevated aggravated assault for allegedly shooting fellow lobsterman Chris Young in the neck in a dispute over lobster traps on July 20. Young, who remains hospitalized, filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Knox County Superior Court seeking punitive damages from Bunker in connection with the shooting. Another lobsterman, Weston Ames, also filed a lawsuit against Bunker seeking damages. Ames said Bunker fired at him but missed before shooting Young. Bunker’s attorney has said Bunker was acting in self-defense. (AP)
