Partridge in Court After Fatal Shooting

It was just about 11 pm Tuesday, when things turned deadly along the the street in front of the "You Know Who's Pub." 30-year-old Matthew Partridge and 26-year-old Justin Smith apparently got into an altercation, just outside of the bar...Partridge pulled out a gun, shot Smith, and then left the scene.
But Partridge, didn't get far. A state trooper tracked down Partridge's pickup and arrested him on Route 8 in Smithfield. Meanwhile, Justin Smith would die of his injuries at Maine General Hospital.
Today, Partridge made his first appearance in Waterville, before  district court Judge Robert Mullen. Mullen ordered him held without bail at the Kennebec County Jail.
At this point, authorities say it  appears Partridge and Smith were total strangers.
