NAPLES, Maine — The suspect in an overnight shooting in Casco was killed early Sunday morning after exchanging gunfire with deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, according to the Maine State Police.
Norman Strobel, 59, of Naples who was sought in connection with a shooting in Casco was shot and killed after a confrontation with deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at a mobile home on the Songo School Road in Naples, Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said Sunday morning in a news release.
Inside that mobile home, deputies discovered the body of the owner, identified Monday as Richard Diekema, 55. Strobel recently moved into the mobile home, McCausland said Monday.
State police and the Maine attorney general’s office are investigating, which is standard procedure when a police officer is involved in a shooting.
Deputies had been looking for Strobel since a shooting late Saturday night at a camp on Winifred Lane in Casco, where Jason Almeida, 32, of Middleton, Rhode Island, was shot four times, McCausland said. He is recovering from surgery for the gunshot wounds at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.
Almeida’s girlfriend, Alyssa Goulet, 28, of Middleton, Rhode Island, escaped through a window of the camp at which they were staying as the shots were fired.
The camp is owned by Sandra Goulet of Naples, the ex-girlfriend of Strobel, according to McCausland. Sandra Goulet, who is Alyssa Goulet’s mother, was not at the camp at the time of the shooting. McCausland did not say if the women were related.
Deputies then went to the mobile home in Naples and exchanged gunfire with Strobel, who was shot and killed.
No deputies were injured.
Strobel had a protection order issued against him on Sandra Goulet’s behalf, McCausland said Sunday. Strobel had taken the woman’s two dogs from her home in the past week. The dogs were located unhurt Sunday at the mobile home where Strobel died.
