Schools locked down on gunfireJanuary 16,2014
BRADFORD — Vermont State Police were called to Bradford Wednesday to help investigate an incident that led to the death of a local businessman and caused the temporary lockdown of schools in the area.
Shortly before noon the Bradford Police Department responded to Bradford Village Pizza, located on Main Street in Bradford, to assist with a medical call. When responders arrived they discovered that the owner of the business, who was identified as Christian Cameron, 35, of Bradford, had suffered a single gunshot wound to his head.
Cameron was transported to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, in New Hampshire, and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The local elementary school, Oxbow High School and the Riverbend Career and Tech Center were locked down for 25 minutes until police notified the schools that there was no threat to students.
Police do not suspect foul play.
“I am not going to confirm what the nature of that incident was, but can assure you that there is no public danger whatsoever. Because, there was a lot of speculation... in the infancy stages of this incident when we first arrived, but there is absolutely no public danger whatsoever,” Bradford Police Chief Jeffrey Stiegler said.
An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
