WATERFORD, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say they are looking for a suspect who shot at a car after they were spotted deer jacking.

It happened Friday night on Duck Pond Road in Waterford. Police say a man told them he saw what looked like a deer jacking or deer spotlighting. He told police he saw an older-style pickup truck lighting up the field with a rifle pointed out the window, so he followed the truck down several roads. He said a passenger in the truck then shot towards his Jeep, hitting the windshield and causing him to crash. He wasn’t hurt, but now state troopers are trying to find the suspects involved.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, police say to call the St. Johnsbury State Police Barracks at (802)-748-3111.
