WEST GARDINER, Maine (AP) - A medical examiner says a man killed outside a Maine house party died of gunshot wounds to the head, neck and abdomen.

Forty-one-year-old James Haskell was found shot to death in West Gardiner on June 17.

Police say they interviewed a number of people at the party, including the person who fired the shots, but have not determined if any charges will be filed. Sheriff’s logs indicate the shooter called 911.

A state police spokesman said Monday they plan to do more interviews.

Haskell’s stepmother told WCSH-TV that he had struggled with drugs, legal issues and mental illness. She said she had not seen him recently and believed he was trying to get life his together.
