Police charge 2 in Springfield shooting

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont State police say two men are facing charges for their roles in a shooting in Springfield that injured three.

Police say 26-year-old Leon Jiggetts, of Newark, New Jersey, is due in court in White River Junction on Thursday to answer charges of attempted second degree murder and burglary. He's being held on $250,000 bail.

The second suspect, 33-year-old Jabbar Chandler, of Charlestown, New Hampshire, surrendered to authorities in his home state where he is being held as a fugitive. He is also facing charges in Vermont.

It's not clear if they have lawyers.

More charges are possible.

Police say 19-year-old Joseph Atkinson, of Springfield, is being treated for a gunshot wound to the torso. Two others received minor injuries.

Police have not said what led to the Wednesday shooting.
