Police fatally shot a man outside of a residence in Blue Hill on Tuesday morning, according to the Maine State Police.

Officers from the state police and Hancock County Sheriff’s Office responded to the home at Curtis Cove Road about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday for a domestic disturbance, officials said.

The call involved an injured woman being held against her will and Peter Pfister, 27, of Blue Hill who was inside the home with firearms, according to Shannon Moss, spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Following an armed confrontation outside of the home, Pfister was fatally shot by Detective Scott Duff, Cpl. Caleb McGary of the Maine State Police and Deputy Sheriff Dylan Hall of Hancock County.

As is standard procedure, the two troopers and deputy sheriff have been placed on administrative leave and the Maine attorney general’s office will investigate, Moss said.

The woman who was inside the home was taken to the hospital for injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, she said.

Around 5:30 p.m., some neighbors on Curtis Cove Road stood outside their homes and watched as multiple law enforcement officials and a state police evidence response team truck pulled away from the residence.

Several people in the neighborhood, a quiet part of East Blue Hill village where most traffic is caused by the narrow street and cars parked on the side of the road for the nearby private beach, declined to comment on the shooting.
