DOVER-FOXCROFT — Dover-Foxcroft police have released the name of the man shot during a fight in town earlier this week, but have not yet announced any criminal charges in the case.

Police said Thursday that 48-year-old Reginald Melvin, of Dexter, was shot three times during a dispute on Lancaster Street at about 6 a.m. Tuesday. One of the wounds was to the stomach.

Melvin was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor where hospital officials say he remains in good condition.

Police do not believe the fight was random. The parties involved knew each other and had a history of conflict.

The investigation is ongoing.
