Two people died on Thursday at Occupy camps in America, the victims of shootings. The first was a man at Occupy Burlington in Vermont, who is believed to have shot himself, while the second was a man near Occupy Oakland.
The death at Occupy Burlington came after a gunshot was heard coming from a green tent. A man was carried out covered in blood and was rushed to hospital. Police believe that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted.
The death at Occupy Oakland, meanwhile, reportedly occurred after two men got into a fight near the camp. It’s not clear whether the men were in any way involved in the protest. There are reports that some protesters might have tried to break up the fight before the shooting.
