PRINCETON — Maine State Police say they are investigating the circumstances that led to a shooting and a fatality Tuesday evening in the Washington County town of Princeton.
Steve Whitman, 60, who owns Long Lake Camps, suffered two gunshot wounds, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.
The body of his alleged assailant, Craig Woodruff, 52, of Baileyville, was found inside a sport utility vehicle that had been parked along the Long Lake Camp Road.
Whitman was treated at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor and is expected to survive. Whitman called 911 around 5 p.m. and identified Woodruff as the man who shot him, McCausland said.
McCausland could not offer any additional details as to how Woodruff died. The state medical examiner’s office will conduct an autopsy on Woodruff’s body on Wednesday.
