Lewiston Murder Suspect Has Been Captured by Police
According to the Kennebec Journal, the man who was accused of killing a Lewiston woman in her driveway in front of her baby has been arrested.
26-year-old Jaquile Coleman was arrested yesterday in the state of Mississippi and is expected to be returned to Maine to face a murder charge for last Friday's incident in Lewiston.
The incident occurred last Friday on Scribner Boulevard in Lewiston. At around 4 PM neighbors called 911 telling dispatchers that they heard at least five gunshots followed by the sounds of a woman screaming. When authorities arrived on the scene they found the gunshot victim bleeding from multiple wounds in the driveway. The suspect had already fled the area.
Later in the day, police located Coleman's car on Farwell Street and set up a perimeter around the house. After making entry into the home they realized that the suspect was already gone and that the vehicle had been abandoned.
