Bristol Police Log: Police, wardens respond to report of shots fired

BRISTOL — Bristol police cooperated with Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife game wardens with gun incidents twice in two days earlier this month.
On Dec. 8 a Bristol police officer responded to a request for assistance looking into a report of shots fired on Plank Road in New Haven. The Bristol officer helped locate the vehicle of interest and a Vermont Fish and Game official conducted an investigation.
The next day, Dec. 9, a Bristol police officer discovered a loaded long rifle during the course of a traffic stop and notified the on-duty game warden who responded to the stop for investigation of Fish and Wildlife violations.
Between Dec. 4 and 8, Bristol police completed daily foot patrols on Main and Mountain streets, near Bristol Elementary and surrounding areas without incident. On Dec. 7 an officer also patrolled downtown on foot a little before midnight.
