Fight Outside Bangor Business Ends with 1 Person Shot, 1 Arrested
Bangor Police are investigating an incident outside a Bangor business that involved a shooting that sent patrons running for cover.
It was just before 2:00 Sunday morning, when two Bangor Police cruisers were parked in a city parking lot, near 190 Harlow Street. The officers heard gunshots coming from 190 Harlow and ran to the scene. When they arrived, they found patrons of the business running for cover behind parked vehicles in the parking lot. Just as police ran up to the scene, a vehicle sped off.
They called in the details of the vehicle, which was quickly stopped by another Bangor Police officer. One of the passengers jumped out of the vehicle and ran. After a brief foot chase, Gaurionex Joaquin-Peguero, 28 of Boston, Massachusetts, was taken into custody. As all this was going on, another man arrived at a local emergency room with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
As the result of an investigation, police learned that a fight had broken out between patrons waiting to get into the Harlow Street business. One of the men involved in the physical altercation pulled out a gun and began shooting.
Joaquin-Paguero is now charged with elevated aggravated assault.
Bangor Police are now hoping to hear from people who were in the area of 190 Harlow Street at the time of the incident, especially anyone who witnessed the shooting. Anyone with information can call Detective Dustin Dow at the Bangor Police Department at 207-947-7384, extension 5729.
