“We are devastated by the events in Lewiston,” wrote Mulaney in a message posted to his Instagram stories, on behalf of himself and Davidson. “Shows scheduled for this weekend in Maine on Saturday, 10/28 and Sunday, 10/29 have been postponed. We are thinking of you all.”
The manhunt continues on Thursday for shooting suspect Robert Card, who should be considered “armed and dangerous,” per Mills. Maine State Police have ordered a shelter in place in the cities of Lewiston, Lisbon and Bowdoin amidst the continuance of the search, which has already led to the ID of Card’s white SUV.
Described as a firearms instructor, the 40-year-old Card reportedly opened fire at two Lewiston locations on the 25th, including at a bowling alley and a bar and grill. President Joe Biden has subsequently ordered all U.S. flags to be lowered to half staff in memory of the deceased.
Mulaney and Davidson are on tour together across North America through November. The pair’s statement can be found below.
