Vermont State Police: Cornwall home’s door shot

CORNWALL — Vermont State Police are investigating what they are calling a vandalism case involving birdshot fired at front door of a home on Park Hill Road in Cornwall this week.
The property in question had been the scene of a major fire last July that investigators deemed “suspicious.” That fire severely damaged a house, main barn, carriage barn and two smaller barn. Cornwall Fire Department Dennis Rheaume described it at the time as the biggest fire he had seen in his 25 years with the department.
In this most recent case, police said in a press release that the shots at the house took place at 2:30 a.m. either on Sunday, Jan. 27, or Monday, Jan. 28. The press release gave both dates and state police were unable to get back to the Independent to clarify.
Police have obtained security footage of a vehicle they believe might have been used by the shooter.
A Cornwall resident informed the Addison Independent about this incident on Monday, Jan. 28. The Independent immediately sought details about the case from Vermont State Police, who issued a press release on Wednesday, Jan. 30.
Police said they believe this to have been a “targeted event” and that there’s no threat to the general public.
Anyone with information about this incident, or anyone with information regarding recent suspicious activity in the Park Hill Road area, is encouraged to contact Trooper Josh Gurwicz at the New Haven barracks at 388-4919.
