COLCHESTER — In a coordinated effort, the Colchester Police Department, alongside the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Chittenden County Gun Violence Task Force, arrested a local man on June 3, in relation to a shooting incident that occurred on Sharrow Circle last month.
