Police: Man Arrested and Charged in Fatal Vermont Shooting | Vermont News



GREENSBORO, Vermont (AP) – Vermont State Police have arrested a man charged with murder in connection with a fatal shooting in Greensboro.

Darryl Johnson, 48, of Greensboro, faces a second degree murder charge in the Oct. 20 shooting against Robert Chaplin, 27, of East Hardwick, police said. Authorities said the shooting took place after an argument earlier today.

Authorities said Chaplin attempted to buy alcohol from a store, but was arrested because he was deemed too drunk by a store employee. Johnson intervened at the store in the dispute between Chaplin and the store clerk, WCAX-TV reported.

Hardwick Police said they had been called to the scene, but Chaplin left before they arrived.

Police said that an hour after the incident at the store, Chaplin drove to Johnson’s home in Greensboro, the men got into a fight and Chaplin was shot in the chest and arm, WCAX-TV reported .
