Shooting death of Vermont National Guard member investigated


ESSEX (AP) - Police investigating the shooting death of a man who served with the Vermont Army National Guard say a second person was involved.

Forty-four-year Kryn Miner of Essex Junction died Friday of a gunshot wound.

Chittenden County State's Attorney T.J. Donovan said it's being investigated "as a death by shooting of an individual by another." The Vermont State Police crime lab is assisting in the investigation.

Miner was with the guard during its 2010 deployment to Afghanistan.

Maj. Christopher Gookin, a Vermont National Guard spokesman, said Miner held the position of chief warrant officer 2 and was assigned to the headquarters company of the Guard's 86th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
