A gunman opened fire in two locations in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday night, killing 18 people and injuring 13 others. The police’s suspect in the mass shootings, 40-year-old Robert Card, remained at large on Thursday. There is an arrest warrant out for Card for eight counts of murder.
“No words can truly or fully measure the grief of Maine people today,” Maine Governor Janet Mills said in a press conference on Thursday. “Our small state of just 1.3 million people has long been known as one of the safest states in the nation. This attack strikes at the very heart of who we are and the values we hold dear for this precious place we call home.”
Mulaney and Davidson kicked off their John & Pete Tour at the top of the month. The duo appear to be moving forward with two shows on Friday night in Providence, Rhode Island, but are delaying Saturday’s set in Portland, Maine, and Sunday’s set in Bangor for later dates.
The final date of their tour is Nov. 10 in Windsor, Ontario.
