Four members of Maine’s deaf community, a 14-year old boy and a grandfather are among those who were killed in the deadly shooting.

Public safety commissioner Mike Sauschuck said "all possibilities are open" regarding what steps Robert Card may have taken after the shooting.

It comes after it was announced earlier on Friday that divers were set to join the hunt for suspected gunman Robert Card after a vehicle was found at a boat ramp near a river in Lisbon.

A vehicle connected to the shooting suspect was found at a boat ramp near the Androscoggin River in Lisbon, Maine it was said on Friday.

Press maps showed that the suspect’s car was found in Pejepscot boat landing, according to Maine's Commissioner of Public Safety Mike Sauschuck.

"We will be checking for evidence... checking for potential bodies," he said at a press conference on Friday.

"I'm not telling you we think the suspect is in the water," he added.

Mr Sauschuck added that the search of the river will also extend to the surrounding area, including an aerial search by helicopters.
