Thirty-eight year-old Laurie Anne Shifflett was found dead in her home last night. Police were called to the house on Spotswood Trail around 9:20 p.m.
They found Shifflett's husband, 60 year-old Fred Junior Shifflett, with a gunshot to the head. He was flown by Pegasus to UVA Medical Center and is in fair condition Tuesday.
Rockingham County investigators have not yet decided if the shooting was an attempted murder suicide or an attempted double homicide.
Neighbors say the couple kept to themselves and often argued.
