LAMOINE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --  State Police say Leon Tilden's family told them the Lamoine man was acting erratically in the weeks before he shot and killed his father and uncle.  The shooting happened on Tuesday.   

Leon Tilden also died that day after being shot by state police during a standoff. State police now say Tilden's family told them he appeared depressed, and was shooting at racoons and other animals in the middle of the night. They were worried about the number of guns he had in his cabin.

According to police, Tilden used a shotgun and 22 caliber handgun to kill his father and uncle. They still don't have a clear motive.
