Lewiston Police Arrest 3 in Connection with Saturday Shooting
Three people face charges in connection with a shooting Saturday morning in Lewiston.
Police responded to the area around Walnut and Pierce Streets just before 3:00 Saturday morning to a report of gun shots and people fighting. Officers learned some of the people involved had run into a 21 Walnut Street apartment and surrounded the building.
As a result of that investigation, 19-year-old Elisha Felix Rios of Jersey City, Jersey was arrested, after being treated for a gunshot wound to his leg. He was taken into custody on a probation hold, as he was on probation for a gun-related conviction. 28-year-old Benjamin Alan Brown of East Boston, Massachusetts was arrested and charged with reckless conduct with a firearm. 25-year-old Shantal Chisholm of 21 Walnut Street in Lewiston is charged with violation of conditions of release. Chisholm had previously lived in Jersey City, NJ.
A search of Chisholm's apartment resulted in the seizure of four handguns, numerous shell casings, over 50 grams of heroin, and $1,000 in suspected drug proceeds. Police say the investigation is ongoing and more arrests and/or charges are possible.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Lewiston Police Detective Tyler Michaud at 207-513-3001 ext. 3316.
