A 35-year-old man is reportedly in a serious condition in hospital following a self-inflicted shooting at the Occupy Burlington camp in Vermont. Details are sketchy, but the man is said to have shot himself in a tent at the camp in City Hall Park shortly after 2pm on Thursday.
The man was reportedly removed from a green tent and observers reported that there was a significant amount of blood. Rumours have been spreading that the man has died, but these are completely unfounded at present and there is no official word about his condition other than that it is ‘grave’.
The weapon used in the shooting has been recovered and police say there is no danger ot the public. The shooting comes less than a day after the Occupy Burlington camp saw a performance by Gogol Bordello.
