Prosecutors: 4 charged, more under investigation in shooting

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Prosecutors say multiple subjects are still under investigation in the fatal shooting of a man last fall in Concord, Vermont.

The girlfriend of the victim, 37-year-old Michael Pimental, has implicated her father and another man in the shooting. All three have been charged, along with a fourth man.

The Caledonian Record reports Thursday that federal prosecutors say there are a large number of un-indicted co-conspirators still under investigation in the case.

Federal prosecutors are seeking extra time because the investigation into Pimental’s death has become intertwined with a drug investigation.

Last summer, the Vermont Drug Task Force began a drug investigation into Pimental, his girlfriend, her father, and others.
