University Mall shooting suspect, 29, heads to court

29-year-old Kieemi Kirkland has been arrested and charged in connection to the fatal shooting out the University Mall last week Monday, police say.

Investigators say the suspect was seen firing at another male at the back-packing lot of the mall on 1st Nov. 2021. No other individual was injured in the shooting, as everyone scampered for their lives.

Detectives say the shooting was a result of a relationship with an unidentified woman. The man of Winooski fled the scene after the shooting and was trailed and apprehended on Thursday by the police.

He is scheduled to appear in court Friday on charges of first-degree murder and other weapon offenses.
