In this time of mourning following the Lewiston mass shooting, a Maine man has been charged with terrorizing after deputies say he posted an image of himself with a gun with the caption, “Lewiston part 2.”
The Somerset County Sheriff’s Office says it got a report on Monday that 18-year-old Michael Bowden of Etna took a selfie outside the Walmart in Palmyra with a gun and ammunition and posted it on Snapchat.
Bowden was a former employee of the Palmyra Walmart, according to deputies.
He was reportedly fired from Walmart in 2021. Deputies say he has recently been seen in the Walmart parking lot on a nightly basis, most recently on Saturday night.
Deputies arrested Bowden at his home in Etna without incident. He was charged with aggravated reckless conduct and domestic violence terrorizing.
According to deputies, the gun Bowden showed in the Snapchat post was a Savage bolt action hunting rifle. The gun was seized as evidence.
Bowden was taken to the Somerset County Jail and has been released on $10,000 cash bail.
