Burlington police are still completing their investigation of the shooting death last week at the Occupy Burlington encampment. Josh
Pfenning died in a tent at City Hall Park last week. Police Chief
Michael Schirling says his department is waiting for final reports.
"Occupy Wall Street" protesters at City hall Park in Burlington say they will continue their demonstrations against
income inequality in America, but they have not returned their
encampments to City Hall Park since police evacuated the area.
Burlington police say Occupy Burlington demonstrators likely
won’t be allowed to camp in a downtown park any longer. Police had been taking a "wait and see" approach to
protesters who have been camping in City Hall Park for two weeks. But that changed after a fatal shooting
yesterday and tense exchanges last night between police and some protesters.
Burlington police have been investigating Thursday’s shooting in City Hall Park at the "Occupy Burlington" encampment. They’ve identified the 35-year-old man as Josh Pfenning and they suspect his shooting was a suicide.
