On March 24, 2019, the Burlington Police Department responded to and investigated a shooting on Clarke Street in Burlington. That investigation identified the alleged shooter and attempted murder suspect as Alfred Leon Wisher, age 37, of Burlington. Immediately following the shooting, Wisher fled the scene and ultimately the state of Vermont. The US Marshals Service in the District of Vermont, Burlington Field Office, adopted the fugitive apprehension case and began pursuing Wisher with aid from the Burlington Police Department and many other local, state and federal partners.

On the evening of July 29, 2019, Alfred Leon Wisher was located and arrested by the US Marshals Service, Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, in conjunction with the Savannah, Georgia Police Department. Police had received information that Wisher was living in Savannah, Georgia and was using an alias. Law enforcement combined information and efforts resulting in the apprehension of Wisher. Wisher was allegedly in a stolen vehicle and led law enforcement on a brief foot pursuit when they attempted to apprehend him. Wisher was taken into custody without further incident.
