A South Burlington man faces charges for randomly firing his rifle in woods behind his home, forcing the closure of a road.
Amrou Mohamed, 23, is sceduled to be arraigned today. Police say he was not supposed to have a gun because of pretrial conditions of release stemming from a 2017 sexual assault arrest.
Police said they found a handgun and ammunition, in addition to the .22-caliber rifle, in Mohamed’s home.
He was taken into custody on Saturday and later released.
It’s unknown if Mohamed has a lawyer, and he didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
