Vt. police say all clear in Newport

Posted: Updated:

Police say the threat is over in Newport. Thursday night, police had asked residents to lock their doors and stay inside while authorities searched for a gunman.

It all started around 9:15 p.m. when shots were fired in an apparent domestic dispute. No one was hurt, but the alleged shooter was on the loose, prompting that lockdown and search.

Police shut down Lake Road between Lord Nelson Lane and Campbell Road.

Newport officers say they eventually got in touch with the man who fired the shots. Nicholas Bruce, 31, does not face any criminal charges, but they did issue him a civil ticket for violating a city ordinance by firing the gun.
