ROYALTON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police arrested a man in connection with a shooting in Royalton that left one man dead and injured another.
Police on Wednesday said Francis Phelps, 29, of Royalton, was arrested following the shooting Tuesday at a home on Route 14.
Phelps was expected to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon in White River Junction on charges of second-degree murder, aggravated assault with a weapon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.
Police said an autopsy of the victim, George Sun, 41, of Royalton, determined that he died of a gunshot wound to the torso. They said Dakota Fielder, 26, remained hospitalized at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. He was in fair condition.
Police said Sun and Fielder were involved in a dispute with Phelps and another man, who was staying at the home.
