GUILFORD — Police say a dive team has located the gun that was used in a shooting in a central Maine town during a street fight involving more than a dozen people.

The gunshot victim and three other people were hospitalized Monday night following a street brawl in Guilford between people armed with baseball bats, knives, a Rottweiler and a gun.

During the fight, one of two men attacked by the dog fired a gun toward the animal, but the bullet struck the dog’s owner.

Piscataquis County Chief Deputy Robert Young tells WZON-AM that a state police dive team recovered the gun Tuesday from the Piscataquis River in Guilford.

Three of the four people who were hospitalized have been released. An investigation is ongoing.
