Three Men Shot in Vermont

-By Lilyan Beck-

 

On Saturday, three men were shot in Burlington Vermont by a man who seems to have had racial motives.


The three men, all aged 20 and of Palestinian descent, were visiting one of the victim's relatives for Thanksgiving.


The alleged shooter confronted the three and without saying a word, opened fire shooting two in the torso and the third in his lower extremities.

According to police, two of the men are in stable condition while the third is in more serious condition.


The suspect was then arrested on Sunday afternoon after police investigated his home.


Burlington police chief Jon Murad said, "In this charged moment, no one can look at this incident and not suspect that it may have been a hate-motivated crime. nd I have already been in touch with federal investigatory and prosecutorial partners to prepare for that if it's proven. But now that the victims are safe and receiving medical care, our next priority is identifying, locating, and apprehending the suspect. We're working every investigatory angle on this case, and will continue to provide reliable, factual information to public while protecting the victims and our investigation."


The alleged shooter will be seen in court later today.
