Jason Eaton

A 48-year-old man accused of shooting three men of Palestinian descent in Burlington Saturday night pleaded not guilty to three charges of attempted second degree murder.

Jason Eaton, of Burlington, was arraigned in Chittenden County Superior Court Monday morning. He’ll be held in prison without bail, and a hearing will be scheduled in coming days to decide whether he should continue to be held without bail.

All three shooting victims are 20-year-old college students and were in Burlington visiting one student’s family during Thanksgiving break.

According to the Burlington Police Department, Hisham Awartani, Kinnan Abdalhamid and Tahseen Ahmed were walking on Prospect Street when Eaton, who’s white, confronted them and without speaking fired at least four rounds from a pistol.
