On 3/20/19 at around 6:30PM the Brattleboro Police Department responded to a report of a shooting at the Representative Town Meeting school information night at Green Street School. Multiple BPD officers responded and were assisted by the Vermont State Police and Windham Sheriff’s office. Approximately ten officers were involved in the response to this incident.
Officers met with meeting organizers and members and determined there had been no shooting or suspicious event. BPD searched the entire school and did not find anything out of the ordinary. The RTM meeting continued uninterrupted.
BPD and school officials communicate regularly regarding school safety matters. That communication continued with this incident and law enforcement continues to work closely with WSESU staff. All scheduled school events will take place and there are no cancellations or delays.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing.
BPD would like to thank VSP, WCSD, Brattleboro Fire, and Rescue, Inc for their assistance responding to this incident.
