DANVILLE — Vermont State Police are investigating a shooting incident that left one man dead and another injured at a private residence in Danville today.
The incident, which occurred just after 1 p.m. on North Danville Road, began as a domestic dispute between two members of the same household. Preliminary reports suggest the two men exchanged gunfire.
A 50-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene while a 23-year-old man was transported to Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital in St. Johnsbury. Due to the severity of his injuries, he was later transferred to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, where he is now in stable condition.
Authorities have withheld the names of both individuals pending the outcome of an autopsy, which is slated to take place at the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington in the upcoming days.
The ongoing investigation has mobilized multiple units of the Vermont State Police, including the Major Crime Unit, Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Field Force Division, and Victim Services Unit.
This incident comes on the heels of another unrelated shooting on Friday night in St. Johnsbury, which left two men critically injured. Police emphasized that there is no connection between the two incidents.
Anyone with potential information regarding Saturday’s shooting is urged to contact the Vermont State Police in St. Johnsbury at 802-748-3111.
Details are still emerging, and updates will be provided by state police as the investigation progresses.
