A man was shot and killed, and a woman was shot and wounded by police Friday evening in Vassalboro, according to state police.

The woman was taken to an area hospital for treatment, according to Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Information on what led to the shooting was not immediately available, McCausland said.

The incident occurred on Arnold Road, which is off Webber Pond Road, near Natanis Golf Course and Webber Pond.

Scanner traffic earlier Friday evening indicated police were looking in Vassalboro for a man who allegedly had stolen a truck after an armed robbery.

The officers involved were not injured.

The incident occurred shortly before 5 p.m.

McCausland said the state attorney general’s office would be the investigating agency, because police were involved in the shooting. The AG’s office was sending an investigator to the scene, he said.
