DOVER-FOXCROFT — A Dexter man shot during an altercation in Dover-Foxcroft last month is now facing charges in connection with the case.
Police told WABI-TV on Monday that 48-year-old Reginald Melvin was arrested last week on a charge of aggravated assault in connection with the April 22 fight that left him with a bullet wound to the stomach. He is being held at the Piscataquis County Jail on $2,500 bail and it’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
Police say Melvin was beaten and shot during a dispute with other men with whom he had a history of conflict.
Cousins Wilbur Joe Corson and Kyle Corson are facing attempted murder and other charges in the case. Their family members say they acted in self-defense.
