BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Burlington Police are investigating an early morning shooting that happened on Sunday.

Police say a 911 call came in around 4 a.m. regarding a shooting near the 200 block of North Willard Street.

According to police, the caller reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot, followed by a man running after two other people. When officers arrived at the scene, they say they were able to determine that multiple shots had been fired.

Police recovered ballistics evidence and found a firearm on the ground next to the residence.

A short time later, police say they received a call from the UVM Medical Center’s emergency department about a man who had walked in with gunshot wounds.

Police were able to confirm the man was involved in the incident. However, the extent of his involvement is unknown at this time.

Police say the man’s injuries were not life-threatening.

Burlington Police detectives and officers have secured the scene and seized the apartment, pending a search warrant. Police say preliminary evidence indicates this is an isolated incident and the public is not in danger.

Police say this was the eighth shooting incident in Burlington so far this year.

It came just hours after the seventh gunfire incident of the year on Saturday.

In that case, police say Sheridan Durochia, 25, of Hinesburg, pointed a gun out a minivan window at North Avenue and Institute Road and fired two shots into the air.

Williston Police later caught up with Durochia, who faces charges of reckless endangerment and DUI.
