Does a video that began circulating on October 25, 2023, show the arrest of Lewiston, Maine, mass shooting suspect Robert Card? No, that's not true: Card was still at large at the time of writing on October 26, 2023. A manhunt was ongoing and a shelter-in-place advisory for residents had been expanded to include the towns of Lewiston, Lisbon and Bowdoin, Maine.

The photos in this Facebook post are photos of Card that appeared on his now-deleted Facebook account. The unidentified video of what appears to be police arresting someone on a darkened street does not show Card's arrest because that had not happened at the time the video was posted. The caption suggesting that there were two suspects is false. Card was the only suspect at the time of writing.
At an October 26, 2023, press conference at 10:30 a.m. ET, Maine Gov. Janet Mills stated that 18 people were killed in the shootings in Lewiston the night before. Col. William G. Ross of the Maine State Police stated that the search for Card was going on "right now." Ross explained that a warrant for eight murders has been issued because only eight of the deceased people have at the time been identified, and that the number would likely change as the other victims are identified.
Caution to the public.
A shooting incident with multiple casualties has occurred in multiple locations in Lewiston. Police are currently searching for Robert R. Card (04/04/83) of Bowdoin. Card is considered armed and dangerous. If seen people should not approach Card or contact with him. The shelter in place order stands in Lewiston. A vehicle of interest was located in Lisbon and we are now also asking residents in Lisbon to shelter in place as law enforcement works in that area to locate Card.
