A Cambridge man is free on bail this week after his arrest Friday for allegedly shooting another man in the nearby Piscataquis County town of Parkman.
Torey R. Tremblay, 29, of Guilford Road, is charged with aggravated assault for allegedly using a revolver to shoot Scott Knowlton, 50, of Parkman, in the leg, according to R. Christopher Almy, district attorney for Piscataquis and Penobscot counties.
Almy said a friend of Knowlton was feeding Knowlton’s horses when he heard hollering and then a gunshot. The friend went to the house and found Knowlton with a gunshot wound to his leg, Almy said. Knowlton told him Tremblay had shot him.
The friend drove Knowlton to Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft and police were notified. Almy said the friend also saw Tremblay leaving Knowlton’s home in a vehicle.
“Scott Knowlton told police that the defendant came to his house drunk and acting crazy,” Almy said. “Mr. Knowlton told the defendant to leave and pushed him toward the door of his house.”
Tremblay then allegedly went to his truck, got a revolver and shot Knowlton from a distance of about 20 feet, he said. Almy said he did not know the motive in the shooting.
Three Somerset County sheriff’s deputies were sent to Tremblay’s home in Cambridge to hold him until Piscataquis County deputies came to arrest him.
The aggravated assault charge is a class B felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. An intake worker at the Piscataquis County Jail said Tremblay had made bail but he would not say how much the bail amount was.
Tremblay is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 3 for a dispositional conference on his case.
Attempts to reach Tremblay and Knowlton for comment Wednesday were not successful.
