Domestic dispute results in shooting death


HINSDALE, N.H. -- A domestic dispute that turned violent resulted in the shooting death of a 26-year-old Hinsdale man Sunday evening.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office is investigating the incident.

According to a press release from New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, State Police Colonel Robert L. Quinn and Hinsdale Police Chief Todd Faulkner, at approximately 10:15 p.m. on Oct. 13, officers from the Hinsdale Police Department responded to a 911 call that was placed from a residence in Hinsdale.

Once there they were met by the family that resides at that residence and discovered that one of the occupants, Dustin Curtiss, age 26, appeared to have suffered at least three gunshot wounds.

Curtiss was first transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital in Vermont and then to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Mass., where he was pronounced dead. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Massachusetts will be conducting an autopsy to determine Mr. Curtiss's exact cause and manner of death.

The investigation is still in its early stages. No one has been arrested in connection with the incident and the investigation is ongoing.
