STANDISH – A 52-year-old man from Standish was shot Thursday night while driving on Route 113 by someone in another vehicle as it passed him.

The man, whom authorities have not identified, was struck in the leg by one of several shots fired at him as he was traveling northbound in Standish about 10:46 p.m., according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim, who was alone in his car, followed the shooter’s car until losing sight of it near routes 11 and 113 in Steep Falls, the sheriff’s office said in a news release Friday.

The victim was later taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland, where he was treated and released.

Sheriff Kevin Joyce said investigators do not have a description of the shooter’s car to release at this time.

Joyce said investigators in his office do not believe the shooting was random. He declined to elaborate.

Investigators ask anyone who has information regarding the shooting to call 893-2810 and ask to speak to a criminal investigator.
