WALDO, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine said a two-week-old baby was unharmed during an armed standoff in a small town on Sunday.
A 30-year-old man in Waldo reportedly fired shots in the direction of state troopers when they were investigating a domestic violence complaint, state police said. The home was also reportedly occupied by a two-week-old baby, police said.
