PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Some victims and family members of those killed in a mass shooting in Maine are signaling their intent to sue with attorneys’ request for 20 state and federal agencies to preserve evidence. Attorney Travis Brennan from Berman & Simmons said the notifications are critical to safeguard information and “protect the rights of all victims of this horrific event.” The letters were mailed on the same day Democratic Gov. Janet Mills and Attorney General Aaron Frey announced members of a seven-member independent commission to investigate the tragedy on Oct. 25 in Lewiston. Eight people were killed and 13 others were injured in the deadliest mass shooting in Maine history.
