A woman and a man from Unity received non life threatening injuries when they were shot in an early Saturday morning drive-by shooting in Waterville.
According to the KJ, at about 3 o'clock on Saturday morning, the Waldo County Sheriff's Office reported to the Waterville Police Department that they had been called to a home in Unity for a gunshot wound.
A statement from the Waterville Police Department explained that a man and a woman reported that they were involved in an altercation that turned into an assault on The Concourse in Waterville. In their vehicle, they fled south on Silver Street. As they neared the intersection with Kennedy Memorial Drive, they heard gunfire. The gunfire wounded both of them in their legs.
Both the man and woman were taken to the Thayer Center for Health in Waterville. They were treated and released.
According to the newspaper, the statement said, in part:
When deputies arrived at the address, they located the female caller who had sustained a gunshot wound to her lower leg. A second individual, a male, was located on the second floor of the residence who had also sustained a gunshot wound to his leg. Deputies reported that both victims stated they had been shot while in Waterville.
Unfortunately, the victims were not able to provide law enforcement with a good description of the men or of their vehicle. It is not clear what the relationship between the man and the woman is.
