These maps show where police are searching for the suspect and evidence from the Maine shooting rampage

Law enforcement agencies have descended on southern Maine to search for a man suspected of killing 18 people in two mass shootings Wednesday.

Public safety officials released these maps Friday of key areas in their investigation:

Maine Department of Public Safety

A boat launch in Lisbon: Investigators located a white Subaru SUV, believed to belong to suspect Robert Card, at the Pejepscot Boat Launch in Lisbon, about 8 miles southeast of Lewiston, where the shootings took place.

That discovery has raised the possibility that Card escaped on the water, and the US Coast Guard has been searching the area by both air and water. On Friday, divers will search the waters of the Androscoggin River, while other law enforcement officials will comb the banks of the river, Maine Public Safety Commissioner Michael Sauschuck said in a news briefing Friday.

The bowling alley: This was the first location — a bowling alley called Just-In-Time Recreation — where authorities received a 911 call about a shooter on Wednesday evening. Ultimately, law enforcement found seven people dead at the bowling alley.

Sauschuck said Friday that the investigation is ongoing at Just-In-Time, acknowledging that it may feel like a slow process, but saying that law enforcement is being diligent and “respectful of the victims and the families that we are working with.”

A bar and grill: About 10 minutes after the 911 call about the bowling alley shooting, law enforcement was notified about an active shooter at this location, Schemengees Bar and Grille. Ultimately, police say eight people were killed at the restaurant, including one person who was found outside the establishment.

Sauschuck said, like the bowling alley, investigators are still likely “days away” from completing their work at this crime scene.

“We are going to be processing every square inch of these facilities,” the public safety commissioner said, mentioning, for example, that law enforcement will process every cartridge found on the ground and every vehicle in the parking lots.
