The family of the man suspected of killing 18 people in Lewiston, Maine, is urging him to surrender, his brother said.
Police are still searching for the suspect, Robert Card, 40, who is facing an arrest warrant for eight counts of murder, Maine State Police Col. William Ross said during a Thursday news conference.
The suspect's brother, Ryan Card, said in a text message to CNN that the family has "helped law enforcement in anyway possible" and that they are urging Robert to turn himself in.
He would not tell CNN if his brother has responded to the family’s requests.
"The police have been given anything that we can offer to facilitate their efforts," he said, adding that “there are many people hurting out there, please focus on them … this is many people’s worst nightmare.”
