John Crouch III, 39, of 5 Jackson Crossing Road in West Paris was taken into custody shortly before 1 p.m. in South Paris on a charge of attempted murder.

That charge, a Class A felony, is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

Angelique Henderson, 39, of 433 Oxford St. in South Paris was arrested shortly before 1:30 p.m. in Bethel on suspicion of conspiracy, but she was not charged.

“At this point in time, there was not sufficient evidence to bring a charge,” District Attorney Andrew Robinson said Monday.

Vincent Andre Lewis Coppin Jr., 18, of Dorchester, Massachusetts, called police about 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 saying he had been shot near Jackson Crossing Road in West Paris, according to deputies who said Coppin had been shot in the chest.

He was flown to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston for treatment and released later in the week, according to Chief Deputy James Urquhart.

“He was interviewed by police and is not cooperating,” Urquhart said Friday.

Crouch and Henderson were taken to the Oxford County Jail in Paris, where records indicated both are unemployed.

Crouch appeared in a Paris court Monday and had his bail set at $150,000 cash. He was transferred to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.

Henderson was released from jail Monday without bail, a corrections officer said.

Crouch’s criminal history includes four misdemeanor convictions, including theft, carrying a concealed weapon and a drug charge.

Henderson has been convicted of misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass.
