Burlington police respond to gunfire incident at Perkins Pier

Aug 23 2022, 1:55 PM

Police responded to reports of gunfire at Burlington’s Perkins Pier parking lot on Monday night. 

Witnesses told police that at around 10 p.m. multiple shots were fired from a white sedan at a darker colored sedan with tinted windows. Both vehicles then sped off. 

Police said they recovered ballistic evidence confirming that a shooting took place but that no injuries had been reported.  

This is the 22nd gunfire incident in Burlington since the start of 2022. It marks the second incident along the city’s waterfront in recent days. On Aug. 19, a shooting at the Andy “A_Dog” Williams Skatepark left at least one person wounded. 

The investigation is still in a preliminary stage, police said.
