A large metal object fell from the sky near the Maine State Capitol, narrowly missing a person walking outside

“The 6-7 pound shell-like object landed at a high speed about 6-8 feet from Capitol Police Screener Craig Donahue who was walking outside the entrance,” the state’s public security department said in a press release.

Two other people were in the area and saw the object fall near the Capitol in Augusta around 12:30 p.m.

The Capitol Police Department has notified Augusta State Airport and the Federal Aviation Administration, the report said.

“The FAA has launched an investigation as it tries to locate the source of the part that is believed to have come from a large aircraft on an international route,” the press release said.

The FAA has issued awareness notices to flights over the area at the time of the incident, officials said in the press release.

CNN contacted the FAA for comment. No injuries were reported in the incident.
