AUGUSTA — Officials say a man who was shot in an encounter with a Maine trooper and two U.S. Border Patrol agents died from multiple gunshot wounds.

The state Medical Examiner’s Office reached the conclusion Monday after performing an autopsy on the body of 55-year-old Neil Begin.

The Attorney General’s Office said the shooting occurred after an “armed encounter” at Begin’s home in Cyr Plantation during a criminal investigation. Begin was airlifted after Friday’s shooting to a hospital in Bangor, where he died the following morning.

Administrator Jim Ferland said today an initial report that the autopsy was inconclusive was a misunderstanding and that the information was released before the autopsy results became available.
