As the manhunt in Maine intensifies for Robert Card, a person of interest in a mass shooting at two locations in Lewiston, state and local authorities are asking the public for tips to help lead to his capture. Card, 40, is being sought after at least 18 people were killed and 13 more were wounded in shootings at Schemengees Bar and Grille and Just in Time Bowling, Maine Gov. Janet Mills and law enforcement officials said at a Thursday morning press conference. Communities across the state remain under shelter-in-place advisories, while schools and college campuses have closed and canceled classes Thursday. Authorities warned the public that Card is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. Here is how you can contact authorities with information about Card or the shooting: LIVE UPDATES: SEVERAL DEAD IN LEWISTON, MAIN MASS SHOOTING WHO IS ROBERT CARD: MAINE AUTHORITIES IDENTIFY PERSON OF INTEREST IN DEADLY SHOOTING RAMPAGE Card is a "trained firearms instructor" and recently reported mental health issues, including "hearing voices and threats to shoot up the National Guard Base in Saco, ME," according to a Maine law enforcement bulletin shared with Fox News Digital. He was also reportedly committed to a mental health facility for two weeks over the summer. Army spokesperson Bryce Dubee confirmed to Fox News on Thursday morning that Card has been in the Army Reserve for over two decades and has received multiple awards for his service, including the Humanitarian Service Medal.
