    Vermont State Police responded Sunday night to a reported shooting and stabbing in Danby.

    The incident was first reported around 7:30 p.m. on John Corey Road. According to scanner reports, a man had been shot in the leg and a woman had been stabbed.

    The conditions of the two people injured were not available at press time.

    Police at the scene declined to comment on the incident.

    Scanner reports indicated that police tried to get a medical helicopter to fly to the scene from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., or Albany (N.Y.) Medical Center. However, due to weather conditions a helicopter could not fly to the scene.

    At least one person injured was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center by ambulance with a police escort.

    John Corey Road is about one mile from Danby Four Corners. Police had yellow crime scene tape across a driveway leading up to the home.

    The home is set back about 100 yards from the road.

    Officers could be seen investigating and snapping photographs as the sun set.

    A constable from Pawlet also responded to the scene as well as firefighting personnel from Danby and emergency responders from Wallingford and Manchester.

    A gathering of bystanders watched at the end of the driveway as police investigated.
