Kerry Hebert of Starks was shot, likely in a “hunting-related incident,” a Madison police officer said.

Several townspeople said at the scene that Hebert was shot by a hunter on his property, but law enforcement officials would not immediately confirm that.

The shooting happened around Dickson Corner on Mayhew Road.

“It’s still under investigation by the major crimes unit of the state police,” said Maine State Police Sgt. Peter Michaud Wednesday night. “The Somerset County Sheriff's (Office) and Maine State Police are working in conjunction with the” Maine Warden Service.

Hebert was lifted by lifeflight helicopter from the parking lot at Madison High School.
