Orwell man arrested on attempted murder charge

1 min read

ORWELL — Vermont State Police arrested a 23-year-old man late Monday afternoon on charges of attempted murder, reckless endangerment, and aggravated assault following a shooting incident in Orwell last week.

Trent J. Beayon, who has residences in both Burlington and Orwell, was taken into custody at a home on Quarry Hill Road in South Burlington after a tipster alerted authorities to his location.

The arrest occurred at approximately 4:40 p.m., and Beayon surrendered to the Tactical Services Unit without incident.

The charges stem from an event on Nov. 17, when Beayon allegedly fired at least one round from a 9mm handgun at Paxton Taube, 25, during a dispute at a residence on Fisher Rd. in Orwell.

Taube, who lived at the house where the confrontation took place, was not harmed in the shooting.

Following his arrest, Beayon was transported to the Williston Barracks for processing.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in Vermont Superior Court’s Criminal Division in Middlebury on Tuesday.

The Vermont State Police have not disclosed further details about the incident as the investigation is ongoing.
