Burlington, VT — Less than a month after a fatal shooting in City Hall Park, Burlington police said a confrontation between two men in the park Wednesday led to the city’s 24th gunfire incident of the year.
Witnesses told officers that a man parked a white truck on College Street before confronting another man in City Hall Park. The first man then fired three shots, according to witnesses. Both men then fled the scene.
Police say they found ballistics evidence at the scene, but do not believe anyone was hit.
This marks the 24th gunfire incident in 2022. A Philadelphia man was shot to death in the park on September 4 in what police say was a targeted attack.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Burlington Police Department at 802-658-2704.
