PEACHAM, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont State Police detective says a Peacham man was shot twice in the chest by his wife's ex-husband before the shooter turned the gun on himself.

Police were called to Peabody's home Wednesday morning after receiving a report from his wife Jeannie Peabody that a white van had pulled up in front of her house. Jeannie Peabody went to a neighbor's house to call 911.
Mark Peabody was the former principal at the Peacham school.
Jackson was a physician in Manchester, N.H.
