Police in Burlington, Vermont are investigating an early Saturday shooting that injured a bystander.
The department says two men were engaged in an altercation near the entrance to City Hall Park after bars closed. It said one of the men pulled out a gun and discharged it at around 2:45 a.m.
The suspect missed the other man, but police say the bullet apparently struck a metal railing alongside City Hall, before hitting a bystander.
Police say the bullet only caused a minor, "non-penetrative injury,'' as it apparently lost nearly all its energy by the time it reached the bystander.
