BANGOR (AP) – Police Wednesday were investigating a suspicious death and trying to determine whether it was linked to a fight that took place around the same time a block away.

Investigators released few details about the death, saying only that it occurred on First Street and that the state attorney general’s office has been consulted. An autopsy by the state medical examiner’s office was scheduled for Thursday.

The victim’s name has not been released, but Lt. Tim Reid said more information would be made public following the autopsy.

The fight, which occurred around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at a house on Second Street, involved two brothers.

Walter Travis, 26, was charged with elevated aggravated assault on his brother James, 18, who was released after treatment at Eastern Maine Medical Center, police said.

Reid declined to go into specifics about the fight, saying only that Walter Travis also was injured and was under police guard at the Bangor hospital. No arraignment date has been set.

“We are treating these cases as separate incidents that occurred about a block from each other, but we are looking to see if they are connected,” Reid said. “It’s just premature to go there at this point.”
