Police on Monday released few new details about a fatal shooting reported in Brattleboro Friday night.

Authorities have now identified the male victim and “identified and interviewed” the person who they believe shot him, but that person is not in custody and nobody has been charged, according to a Brattleboro police press release.

They are working to notify the victim’s next of kin before identifying him publicly.

Police consider the death to be a homicide, meaning it was caused intentionally.

The shooting took place at Great River Terrace, a Putney Road apartment complex for people who lack permanent housing.
