ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Two Vermont State Troopers involved in the shooting of a man in Barton last month have returned to work.

Sgt. Denis Girouard and Tpr. Seth Loomis were placed on administrative leave with pay following the shooting on May 28.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/1kUBBD6) state police are still investigating the shooting and the case will be reviewed by the state attorney general’s office and the Orleans County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Police say the suspect, 27-year-old Eric Jackson of Lyndonville, was wanted on escape status from the Department of Corrections.

After a lengthy pursuit, police say Jackson stopped in Barton, changed directions by accelerating in reverse and repeatedly rammed two state police cruisers. The two officers fired their weapons; they were not hurt.
