They say a man was assaulted and guns were stolen before the shootings began early Friday in three different communities. Police also believe the suspect set fire to a barn Thursday night.

Investigators say 35-year-old Anthony Lord was arrested without incident Friday at a family member's home in Houlton. They say a woman who was with him wasn't harmed.

Police say Lord faces murder charges. They are searching for a motive for the shootings that left 58-year-old Kevin Tozier and 22-year-old Kyle Hewitt dead. Two other men and a woman were injured.
