St. JOHNSBURY — Vermont State Police arrested a man from Brooklyn, N.Y., on a second-degree murder charge for allegedly shooting a man outside a Vermont hospital.
The man was arrested Wednesday at the Northeast Correctional Complex in St. Johnsbury. State police said he had been jailed in New York following his apprehension on a warrant on an aggravated assault charge related to an incident before the shooting.
He was extradited to Vermont on Tuesday night, police said. An arraignment was scheduled Thursday. It wasn’t immediately known if the man had a lawyer.
Before the shooting, he is also accused of hitting a woman in the head inside a vehicle at a parking lot at the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital on March 1.
The investigation into the shooting death of Vincent Keithan is ongoing, police said.
