Two men shot to death at a Biddeford apartment building two weeks ago were armed with a pellet gun and a rubber mallet and were there to rob a drug dealer, Maine State Police said Friday.

Fuquan Prince Wilson, 34, of Bronx, New York, who goes by the street name “P,” has a lengthy criminal record, including a felony drug conviction that bars him from possessing a gun, state police said. He is wanted on a warrant charging him with possession of a firearm by a felon. The charge carries a sentence of up to five years in prison upon conviction, but it could also lead to federal charges, which tend to have stiffer sentences.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Wilson last Saturday but kept it secret. The Attorney General’s Office, which prosecutes homicides in Maine, unsealed the arrest warrant and affidavit Friday because Wilson knows police are looking to arrest him, state police said. Investigators believe he fled Maine after the shooting and they are working with authorities in other states to apprehend him.
