CT Man Accused of Shooting Cruiser's Windows
A Connecticut man was arrested, accused of shooting out the window of a police cruiser in St. Johnsbury, Vermont early Tuesday.
The back window of a police cruiser was shot out on Main Street in St. Johnsbury, State Police Detective Lt. J.P. Sinclair said. John Davis, 45, was caught after a brief foot chase and crashing his vehicle into a building, police said.
Vermont State police are looking into whether Davis is responsible for a series of shootings at some Vermont churches since November. The Church of Latter Day Saints and the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Lyndonville, Vermont both had windows shot out earlier this month. Also two shootings are under investigation in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
