HIGHGATE, Vt. (WCAX) - One man is dead and another is due in court after a weekend shooting.

Police say they believe the shooting was drug-related.

During a car chase on Route 7 Saturday morning, police say Logan Pratt, 33, and Brittnie Blanchard, 30, fled the Highgate home of Joshua LaFromboise, 29.

LaFromboise is accused of driving after them, shooting at their car and hitting Pratt.

The cars went through several towns before waving down Franklin County Sheriff’s Department deputies.

Pratt was taken to the hospital and he died Sunday. An autopsy has been scheduled for him.

LaFromboise was picked up later and was initially scheduled to be in court Monday on suspicion of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder. That was postponed until Tuesday.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Vermont State Police in St. Albans at 802-524-5993 or to submit a tip anonymously online at http://vsp.vermont.gov/tipsubmit.
