Maine is mourning the victims of the country’s deadliest mass shooting this year
He killed 18 people and injured at least 13 others. The youngest was 14 years old. The oldest was 76.
After a two-day manhunt and lockdown that spread over much of the southern part of the state, police say they found him dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
It was the most lethal act of firearms violence in the state’s history. Now some of the state’s representatives are changing their positions on the state’s gun laws.
We check in on Maine with Alain Stephens host of the “The Gun Machine,” a podcast produced by WBUR in partnership with The Trace.
