BARTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Barton man is due in court Monday in connection with a weekend shooting, but police are still trying to figure out who pulled the trigger.

A Barton family tells WCAX News they’re lucky to be alive after multiple shots were fired into their home Saturday night.

The Watson family sent us photos after shots were fired into their home Saturday. You can see the bullets damaged their living room wall and shattered a window.

They say a baby and two adults were inside when it happened around 8 p.m. No one was hurt.

The family is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to whoever is responsible.

Vermont State Police say they arrested the Watsons’ neighbor Sunday, who they say was involved in the shooting but didn’t pull the trigger.

Brent Bapp, 35, of Barton, is accused of threatening and abusive behavior. He faces several charges, including obstruction of justice, aggravated assault and criminal threatening.

Bapp was held on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
