Game Wardens have located two people wanted in connection to a hunting-related shooting in Gorham in which a man was struck in the face with birdshot Monday morning.

The men, who have not been publicly identified, are cooperating with wardens, who are also working with the Cumberland County District Attorney’s office.

The shooting occurred just before 8 a.m. off Mosher Road, where a 55-year-old Casco man was hunting pheasant across the road from Shaw Bros. Construction.

The victim, who also was not named, had a brief interaction with the men immediately following the shooting, but they fled in a pickup truck.

The victim, who was wearing a hunter-orange vest at the time he was shot, suffered non-life threatening injuries and is being treated at Bridgton Hospital.

Wardens said Tuesday the victim was recovering well.
