LEWISTON — Police responded to a possible shooting early Saturday morning on Blake Street, according to officials.

Lewiston police Lt. Derrick St. Laurent confirmed Saturday afternoon that police responded to the area of 54 Blake St. just after midnight for reports of a possible shooting.

When first responders arrived on the scene, they located and transported a man with unspecified wounds, St. Laurent said. When the man was brought to a local hospital, he refused treatment and left.

The victim also refused to cooperate with police, St. Laurent said.
