Maine Governor Janet Mills expressed relief that Card was no longer a threat and called for healing. Card reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

The shooter, a U.S. army reservist, opened fire in a bowling alley and a bar. The incident shocked the normally serene community of Lewiston. Card had a history of mental illness and had been committed to a psychiatric facility earlier in the summer. 

A massive search effort involving various law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and Canadian authorities, led to the discovery of his vehicle in Lisbon, and the search ended with his tragic demise.
