DERBY LINE — A suspect has been taken into custody following a shooting this morning at an apartment building in Derby Line.

Police say they began receiving reports of gunfire at about 9:45 a.m. on Caswell Avenue.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the apartment building near the intersection of Ducharme Drive.

Initial reports indicated there might be multiple shooters and multiple victims, police say.

Attempts were made to make contact with people inside the building but received no response, and a group of law-enforcement personnel entered the building to search for victims.

Police evacuated apartments in the building and at a nearby building.

Police arriving on scene located Alfred Charest, 38, outside the building.
