Police are saying a 35-year-old man is in grave condition after a shooting in City Hall Park, the scene of the Occupy Burlington encampment.
They say it will be several hours before they know more, but did say there is no danger to the public. And they say they have recovered the weapon.
The Burlington Free Press reports that Burlington Deputy Police Chief Andi Higbee said his department received a 911 call a little after 2 p.m. of a discharged firearm in the park.
