Foley eventually surrendered without further incident, and was charged with two counts of attempted aggravated murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The two troopers that were shot were transported to the hospital where one was treated and released while the other was transferred to Fletcher Allen Medical Center for further treatment.

Both Troopers are expected to survive their injuries.

The victim that was shot inside his home is also being treated at Fletcher Allen Medical Center. He is also to expected to survive his injuries.
