Oakland Holds Vigil for 3 Victims in Fatal Shooting

OAKLAND, Maine — Hundreds gathered in central Maine to honor three people who police say were killed in a shooting rampage that ended in a suicide.

The Morning Sentinel reports that clergy and residents came together Sunday night at the Oakland boat landing to "stop and reflect" on the violence, mourn the victims and show support for family members left behind.

Police say 30-year-old Amanda Bragg, her boyfriend, 29-year-old Michael Muzerolle, and Bragg's sister, 28-year-old Amy Derosby, died Wednesday night when Derosby's boyfriend, 42-year-old Herman Derico, shot them in an apartment before killing himself in the driveway. A 9mm handgun was found next his body. Bragg and Muzerolle's 3-year-old daughter was found unharmed and was placed with her grandmother.

Police have said they're trying to determine what sparked the violence.
