Milton police are investigating numerous bullet holes found on the exterior of a Railroad Street residence, Detective Frank Scalise said Monday afternoon.
Residents heard loud bangs early Monday, Aug. 31 but didn’t report the gunshots until just after 9 a.m., initially thinking the noise might have been something else, Scalise said.
Police are investigating the incident as a reckless endangerment case, not simply vandalism, Scalise said. Vermont statute defines that crime as when a person puts another in danger of death or serious bodily injury, including by pointing a gun, loaded or not, at a person, the law reads.
However, there are no reported injuries, and police believe this was an isolated incident, the press release said. Scalise was unable to divulge whether MPD has a suspect.
Officers interviewed neighbors to the incident, though they are not releasing the exact address to protect the victim(s), Scalise said. Many weren’t home at the time, so police are looking for more information.
If anyone saw or heard anything suspicious in the Railroad Street area between Sunday night and Monday morning, they’re asked to call Milton police at 893-6171 or Champlain Valley Crimestoppers at 1-800-427-8477. Anonymous calls are welcome, police said.
