LAMOINE — One of the four people shot outside a home in Lamoine earlier this month says the shootings stemmed from a dispute over payment for a truck paint job and had nothing to do with drugs.

Joshua McKinney of Ellsworth tells the Bangor Daily News that his arrest last week for drug possession has led some people to think the March 11 shooting that left one man dead and three others injured was drug-related.

But he says it was over a $1,200 paint job done to a truck owned by Michael Carter, one of the other men wounded.

McKinney says Carter never paid for the job.

Lawrence “Randy” Sinclair of Ellsworth died in the shooting.

State police say they are still investigating and no one has been charged.
