Shooting, stabbing under investigation in Danby

DANBY - The Vermont State Police responded to a residence on John Corey Road on Sunday for shooting and stabbing that had occurred.

Three adults and two children were found when troopers from the Rutland Barracks and the Pawlet Constable arrived on the scene. Two of the adults - a male and a female - were injured. According to a report by the Rutland Herald, the man had been shot in the leg and the woman had been stabbed.

Wallingford Rescue, Manchester Rescue and Regional Rescue responded to the scene and transported the subjects to Rutland Regional Medical Center. According to the Herald's report, scanner reports indicated that the police had attempted to get a helicopter to the scene from either Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. or Albany (N.Y.) Medical Center. Weather conditions prohibited a helicopter from coming though.
