On eight charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, first-degree aggravated domestic assault, criminal threatening, and violation of conditions of release, Lovell was processed at the Morristown Police Department and is currently being held without bail.
According to the police, Lovell’s arraignment in Vermont Superior Court in Hyde Park is set for 12:30 p.m. on Monday as published in news coverage on the topic by VT Digger. Vermont State Police also posted a tweet regarding this matter:
After receiving a report of a kidnapping and domestic disturbance involving Lovell, a family member, and another person, Morristown officer Brian Tomlinson responded to an apartment near the intersection of Upper Main and Pleasant streets at approximately 8:45 p.m. on Thursday, as reported by Vermont State Police.
On Friday, Lovell was scheduled to appear in court in connection with numerous pending charges. Tomlinson was “struck by pellets fired from Lovell’s shotgun but did not sustain any penetrative injuries,” according to police.
Tomlinson allegedly recognized Lovell from previous encounters and fired back at him before Lovell fled on foot. Whether or whether Lovell was injured during the incident was initially unclear. Police said the officer was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor wounds and then placed on administrative leave, as is routine following a shooting involving law enforcement personnel.
Downtown Morrisville was thrown into chaos as police looked for Lovell. On Friday, schools were canceled and police tape was placed around certain neighborhoods and businesses. Officers armed with guns, helmets, and camouflage patrolled the streets.
