DOVER-FOXCROFT - Authorities have identified the victim injured in Tuesday's shooting incident in Piscataquis County.

The Dover-Foxcroft Police Department released today that 48-year-old Reginald Melvin of Dexter was the man wounded in the Lancaster Avenue altercation.

Police were called to the residence around 6 a.m., for the report of a fight. Melvin allegedly came onto the property and the two homeowners there fired three shots at him with a 22-caliber rifle.
