AUGUSTA – The 23-year-old Cape Elizabeth man killed in a shooting Tuesday night in Farmington died from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The death of Andrew Holland is being ruled a homicide, according to the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office.

Results of a toxicology test could take more than a month to be released, Brandy DesRosier, secretary for the medical examiner, said.

Holland was shot with his friend’s handgun while inside an apartment, just blocks from the University of Maine at Farmington campus, Maine State Police have said.

Ryan Ouimet, 23, of Coltsneck, N.J., has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the shooting. He was released Wednesday on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Franklin Superior Court in Farmington on Wednesday at 2 p.m.

They both graduated from UMF in May.

Police are evaluating the autopsy results and continue to investigate the shooting, Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said Thursday.

The results of testing on the handgun used, which was owned by Ouimet, have not returned from the State Police Crime Lab, according to McCausland. He declined to identify the type of handgun used.
