AUGUSTA, Maine (Reuters) — Maine Governor Paul LePage, a vocal opponent of President Donald Trump, was among those who gathered for a memorial service on Saturday for the man who was shot and killed by police during a standoff at his statehouse office, his office said.
A woman with LePage’s wife was also among those at the service in Portland.
The governor, a Republican, had earlier said the shooting was a tragedy and urged residents to keep calm.
Police say the woman was involved in a struggle with the gunman.
She has not been arrested.
Police said on Saturday that they had arrested a suspect in the shooting.
The suspect, identified as a man in his 40s, has not yet been formally charged.
The incident was the latest in a series of police shootings that have stoked protests in Maine.
