An arrest warrant for multiple counts of murder has been issued for suspect Robert Card, 40, Maine State Police Col. William Ross said during a Thursday news conference.

Eighteen people have been killed and 13 injured in a mass shooting at a restaurant and a bowling alley in Lewiston, Maine Gov. Janet Mills said Thursday, as a furious manhunt continues – with schools shuttered and people warned to stay indoors – for the assailant.

Robert Card, 40, is being sought as a person of interest in the attacks, Lewiston police said around 11 p.m. ET Wednesday, adding he “should be considered armed and dangerous.”

Card is a certified firearms instructor and a member of the US Army Reserves, law enforcement officials in Maine told CNN. He had recently threatened to carry out a shooting at a National Guard facility in Saco, Maine, and reported mental health issues, including hearing voices, the officials said.

Some in the area are waking up Thursday to officers with long guns scouring their neighborhoods.
