Police say a double-fatal shooting in southern Vermont was a case of murder-suicide.

The shootings happened at a home on Grafton Road in Townshend at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Vermont State Police say during a 911 call, gunfire was heard and the line went dead. When troopers arrived, they found Shane Brodeur, 26, dead outside the home. His girlfriend, Katelyn McFadden, 20, was found wounded inside. She was airlifted to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center but died at the hospital.

Investigators say Brodeur shot McFadden before shooting himself.
