BANGOR, Maine — A federal judge has ruled that man who fired as many as 70 shots in Bangor on the Fourth of July, forcing the city's holiday parade to be re-rerouted, is competent to be sentenced.
The judge made the decision on Monday after getting a hospital report, but no date has been set for the sentencing of 44-year-old Perrin Oliver.
Oliver pleaded guilty in December to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to court documents, Oliver wasn't allowed to have guns because of a conviction five years ago in New York.
Police say he fired the shots from an apartment window. A four-hour standoff ended when a tactical team used tear gas to take him into custody. No one was hurt.
