DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine (AP) - A Dexter man shot during an altercation in Dover-Foxcroft last month is now facing charges in connection with the case.

Police told WABI-TV (https://bit.ly/1iT3HTK ) on Monday that 48-year-old Reginald Melvin was arrested last week on a charge of aggravated assault in connection with the April 22 fight that left him with a bullet wound to the stomach. He is being held at the Piscataquis County Jail on $2,500 bail and it’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Police say Melvin was beaten and shot during a dispute with other men with whom he had a history of conflict.

Cousins Wilbur Joe Corson and Kyle Corson are facing attempted murder and other charges in the case. Their family members say they acted in self-defense.
