This post will be updated.

Officials say two men are hospitalized following a shooting and a stabbing in Gardiner, Maine.

Gardiner Police had been called by a Lincoln Ave. resident after one of the injured men came to the door and asked for help. Gardiner Police and rescue personnel responded and located both men outside the home.

Both victims were taken by ambulance to MaineGeneral in Augusta and have been flown by the Lifeflight helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland where they have been undergoing emergency surgery. 

State police used a tracking dog early Saturday to find a suspected assailant hiding in the foundation of an abandoned building just after 1 a.m. State police say that man is being questioned. 

State police declined to release the names of any of the men, but say all three are in their twenties. Further details were not immediately available.
