Police: Alburgh residents killed during exchange of gunfire

1 min read

ALBURGH — Investigators say the two men killed in Alburgh died during an exchange of gunfire late Saturday.

The cause of death for Larry P. Cameron, 41, of Alburgh, was determined to be a gunshot wound of the torso, and the manner of death ruled a homicide.

The cause of death for David Mohamed, 51, of Alburgh, was determined to be gunshot wounds to the torso, and the manner of death is ruled homicide.

Investigators have determined that the escalating feud between Mohamed and Devin Cameron, 27, of Alburgh, over access to land for hunting initially led to a fistfight between the men earlier Saturday evening at the Dillanback Bay fishing access.

Following that physical altercation, Devin Cameron and Larry Cameron traveled to Larry Cameron’s nearby home on Cameron Drive.

Police say a short time later, Mohamed drove to the home, accompanied by two friends in a separate vehicle, 23-year-old and 25-year-old men from North Hero.

Investigators learned that Larry Cameron then came out of the garage area of his home carrying a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and fired multiple shots into the air in an effort to prompt Mohamed to leave.

By this time, Devin Cameron, who was unarmed, had joined Larry Cameron beside the driver’s door of Mohamed’s pickup truck while Mohamed remained seated inside.

Mohamed then brandished a .308 rifle.

A struggle ensued over the rifle, and there was an exchange of gunfire from the armed men.

Mohamed was struck multiple times by rounds from the handgun.

Larry Cameron was struck once by a rifle round.

Devin Cameron sustained multiple gunshot wounds and remains hospitalized.

The investigation will be reviewed by Grand Isle County State’s Attorney Doug DiSabito to determine whether to file any charges.
