Daniel Ryan Pinney (8060)



7/3/2013: Sgt. John Preston and two officers went to Pinney's home to look for Megan Sherrard, 21, and their baby in a possible kidnapping. Police report that as Sherrard tried to exit the home, Pinney shot her twice in the back, and that the bullets also hit the baby. Preston reportedly pulled Sherrard out of the home, was grazed by Pinney's gunfire, and shot him twice in the chest and once in the arm. The medical examiner reported the cause of death as suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. http://bangordailynews.com/2013/12/13/news/down-east/maine-attorney-general-rules-police-justified-in-calais-shooting/
