BETHEL, Vt. (AP) - Police say they used a stun gun on a man accused of shooting a man multiple times in the Vermont town of Bethel.
Police arrested 66-year-old Dennis Dundas late Sunday on a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm. They said they used the stun gun when he refused to show his hands and walk toward them. He was scheduled to be arraigned Monday; it wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
Police say Dundas and 47-year-old Donald Giovanella were inside Dundas’ home when a dispute broke out, resulting in the shooting. Officers found Giovanella lying outside the home. A short time later, Dundas appeared in the doorway; officers said he refused repeated orders to surrender.
Giovanella was in stable condition after undergoing surgery at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
