**Urgent: Police Open Fire on Truck Driver Claiming to Have Explosive Device at U.S.-Canada Border**

On Memorial Day, a truck driver approached the U.S.-Canada border, allegedly carrying a sign indicating an explosive device on board. Police opened fire on the 42-year-old suspect, Tony Holford, from Rhode Island. The tense incident raises concerns about border security and the potential threat to public safety.

Maine State Police Trooper Denver Roy attempted to stop Holford’s vehicle on Interstate 95 in Houlton, Maine. However, Holford did not comply and continued driving. As the pursuit continued north, Trooper Roy noticed a sign in the truck suggesting the vehicle contained an explosive device, though the specifics of the sign remain unclear.

The truck eventually stopped between the U.S. and Canadian border, prompting Roy and other troopers to instruct Holford to exit the vehicle. When he attempted to maneuver the truck towards the Canadian border, Corporal Eric Paquette fired at him. Holford was not injured, and later surrendered to the Maine State Police before being taken to Aroostook County Jail.

Maine State Police assured the public that the incident was contained and there was no ongoing danger. Both Canadian and U.S. authorities are now collaborating on an investigation. Meanwhile, the Maine State Police Bomb Squad and crime scene technicians advised motorists to use alternative entry points while they processed the scene. The Woodstock, New Brunswick border crossing was reopened on Monday night.

The Maine Attorney General’s office is also working with the Maine State Police to investigate the events leading up to the officer-involved shooting. Corporal Paquette, who has 23 years of experience with the Maine State Police, was promoted in the Firearms Training Unit in March. He has extensive training in various weapons platforms and has attended several armorer schools.

**This alarming incident highlights the importance of border security and the necessity to ensure public safety in the face of potential threats. It serves as a stark reminder that danger could be lurking anywhere, and we must remain vigilant at all times.**
