A Vermont woman called 911 to say her husband was pointing a gun at her while he was drinking before she was found dead, state police said.

State police said responding troopers found Thea Swartz dead on the floor in a room inside her Orleans home and her husband, Randall Swartz, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound in the same room Tuesday night following the 911 call.

Randall Swartz, 58, was first taken to North Country Hospital in Newport and was ultimately taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, for further treatment. He has not been charged in connection with his wife's death at this time.

The Vermont Chief Medical Examiner's Office will determine the exact cause and manner of Thea Swartz's death, state police said.

The investigation is ongoing.
