TOGUS SHOOTING: Maine State Police search the woods near the Togus Veterans Administration, in Augusta, Maine, following a shooting Thursday involving police and an armed veteran. Kate Simmons, spokeswoman for the Maine Attorney General's Office, said the shooting came as a result of a confrontation between an unidentified veteran, a Togus police officer and two game wardens. "The game wardens witnessed the confrontation and stopped to aid the officer from Togus," Simmons said. "The armed individual, a male who was not a resident or staff person at the facility, was fatally injured." There were no other injuries, Simmons said. Authorities said the name of the dead man will be withheld until family members can be notified.
