State Police investigating deadly shooting in Biddeford

Douglas Michaud, 31, was shot and killed at an apartment building on Union Street Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

BIDDEFORD, Maine — One man is dead and another is in custody following a shooting in Biddeford Tuesday afternoon. 

Douglas Michaud, 31, of Biddeford was shot and killed on the porch of an apartment building at 26 Union Street just after 3 p.m., according to Maine State Police.

The Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit and Biddeford Police Department remained on scene late into the night Tuesday gathering evidence and conducting interviews. 

Police said Randal J. Hennessey, 30, of Biddeford allegedly fled the scene after the shooting. He was later arrested by U.S. Marshal's Maine Violent Offender Task Force in Durham, New Hampshire. 

Hennessey is charged with being a "Fugitive from Justice," as well as homicide. He is being held at the Strafford County Jail, officials said.

On Wednesday, Hennessy appeared in Strafford County Court. He waived extradition during his court hearing.

Dozens of residents in the area of the shooting reported hearing several gunshots. 

Asha Mooers, who lives behind the building where it happened, said she heard it all.

"You know, it's scary, I have two small children," she said. "The second floor has children, and there's children all around the neighborhood, obviously. It's a neighborhood. Yeah, it's scary. It's very scary."

 Investigators are expected to remain on scene throughout the night and into the morning. An autopsy for Michaud is set to be conducted Wednesday.
