It’s reported a woman was in the car with Jozefowicz when police conducted a traffic stop at 6pm. Police say Jozefowicz fled and was shot and killed in the woods behind the store. Massicotte was convicted of theft in Ellsworth in 2012. Jail officials list her residence as Carmel but her criminal records say she resides in Ellsworth.
