BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A 19-year-old Burlington man is facing an attempted murder charge after allegedly shooting another man during an early morning altercation.
Police say Andrew Dashno will be arraigned Tuesday for attempted second-degree murder.
Officials say Dashno and a 39-year-old Burlington man got into a fight at 2 a.m. Saturday in the city’s Old North End.
Police say the victim had a handgun that fell to the street during the fight, and that Dashno picked it up and fired two shots.
Authorities say the gun was loaded with ‘‘shot shells,’’ and that the victim sustained only minor injuries form the pellets. Police did not identify the victim.
