NH man shot to deathin 'family dispute'

HINSDALE, N.H. (AP) — A 26-year-old man was shot to death during what police believe was a family dispute, authorities said Monday.

Police responded to a home in Hinsdale about 10:15 Sunday night after a 911 call and were met by members of the family who live in the house. Once there, they discovered Dustin Curtiss had been shot to death.

Curtiss had been shot at least three times, according to a brief statement released by New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, State Police Colonel Robert L. Quinn and Hinsdale Police Chief Todd Faulkner.

Curtiss was taken first to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital in Vermont and then to UMass Medical Center in Worcester where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy will be conducted to determine exactly how Curtiss died.

Authorities say the investigation is still in its early stages, but it appears Curtis was shot during a family dispute that turned violent. No one has been arrested.

Hinsdale is in the southwestern corner of the state, near the Vermont state line.
