BENNINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say they found a man dead in Bennington on Wednesday and a suspect is still on the loose.

Investigators say they were called to an apartment on Pleasant Street Wednesday morning where they found a 38-year-old man dead with several gunshot wounds.

Police have identified him but say they are not releasing his name because they are still trying to reach his family.

Investigators said they are questioning two people of interest in the case who they are not calling suspects.

But they say one suspect considered armed and dangerous is still on the loose. They did not offer any description of that suspect and said given that they believe this is an isolated incident, there is no perceived threat to the public at this time.

Vermont State Police are on the scene helping Bennington Police process evidence.

Bennington Police Lt. Camillo Grande said the two people being questioned are local to the Bennington area.

He also said the dead man recently moved to Pleasant Street from someplace else in Vermont.
