The state commission investigating the Oct. 25 mass shooting in Lewiston is meeting in Augusta on Monday morning to kick off its work.
The seven-member panel, led by Daniel Wathen, the retired chief justice of Maine’s high court, is meeting for a closed executive session to discuss staffing and shifting to a public meeting on the organization of the probe at 10 a.m.
You can watch a video stream of the public meeting at this link. It will be held in the room used by the Legislature’s Health and Human Services Committee in the Burton M. Cross Office Building adjacent to the State House.
The investigation is expected to focus on the circumstances leading up to the shooting that killed 18 people and injured another 13 and the two-day manhunt for the gunman, 40-year-old Army reservist Robert R. Card II of Lewiston, who was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Lisbon.
