From the Burlington Free Press: 

Police shot and killed a man Friday in Winooski, the third fatal confrontation involving law enforcement in Vermont since December and the latest in a recent outburst of violence in the city.

“This investigation is in its very early stages and is expected to continue throughout the night, specifically regarding the processing of the scene,” Maj. Glenn Hall, commander of the Criminal Division, said in a statement at 9:45 p.m., about five hours after the shooting.

A body was visible lying on the pavement in the hours after the late afternoon incident.

“Once the scene is processed, the decedent will be transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for autopsy to determine cause and manner of death,” Hall added. “The name of the decedent is not being released at this time, pending positive identification and notification of next of kin. The identity of officers involved and their respective agencies is not being released at this time.”
