Police: Edinburg Man Shot by State Trooper
An Edinburg man was shot by a state trooper Tuesday night. Police were called to 54-year-old Warren Dome’s house around 5:30pm because he was reportedly threatening to kill himself and others. When troopers arrived, they say Dome had a knife and threatened them. Major Gary Wright with the Maine State Police says Trooper Chris Hashey shot Dome. Police won’t say how many shots were fired, but TV 5 was told Dome had a gunshot wound to the thigh and the scrotum. Dome was taken by helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. We’re told Dome was alone at his house when he began making threats. ” The individual was making both suicidal and homicidal threats, as a result, several officers responded, which is typical in those situations,” said Wright. As of 11:30 Tuesday night, Dome was in serious condition. The Attorney General’s Office is investigating the use of deadly force, which is standard procedure. Trooper Hashey is on administrative leave during the investigation.
