Bangor Daily News
BANGOR, Maine — A local man who witnesses said had used “bath salts,” a newly outlawed synthetic drug, told police last week that he had a gun in an apparent attempt to commit “suicide by cop,” according to Sgt. Larry Webber.
“The guy was saying, ‘Why didn’t you shoot me — that’s why I told you I had a gun,’” Webber said Wednesday, reading from Officer Kevin Haefele’s report.
James Green, 29, was reportedly tapping on windows at a Bolling Drive apartment where his girlfriend was when police were called around 7 p.m. July 6.
