Bail Set for Maine Man Charged in Fatal Shooting
12/10/2012 04:09 PM ET  

Matthew Partridge, 30, is charged in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Justin Smith, of China, outside the You Know Who's Pub about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ A Winslow man charged with murder in a late-night shooting outside of a Waterville bar is being held on $700,000 bail.

Bail was set Monday for 30-year-old Matthew Partridge. He's charged in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Justin Smith, of China, outside the You Know Who's Pub about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators say the shooting took place following a confrontation inside the bar, and that there's no indication the two men knew each other.

The Kennebec Journal reports that Partridge's attorney said he was defending himself after Smith prevented him from driving off and punched him in the face hard enough for Partridge to believe he had a broken nose.
