WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (WCAX) - Authorities are investigating a shooting at a hotel in White River Junction that left one man seriously injured.

Police from multiple agencies responded to the Comfort Inn around 6:30 a.m. Friday after a man was shot on the fourth floor of the hotel.

The victim, Michael Lamont, was rushed to the Dartmouth Health Center with life-threatening injuries.

Police say the shooter was taken into custody at the scene. They identified him as Nathan Fuller.

Investigators say it was an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public.

“We are not sure of the motive for the incident,” Hartford Interim Police Chief Connie Kelley said. “It doesn’t appear that they know each other, but we are continuing the investigation to figure all those things out.”

Fuller is being charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. He was held without bail at the Southern State Correctional Facility and is due in court on Monday.

Police say, at last check with the hospital, Lamont was doing better than expected.
