Just after 6 p.m. on Saturday, police arrived at a Lake Monticello home to find one woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. That woman was flown to UVa Medical Center, where she is currently in stable condition.

She told police she had been shot at her home, and when officers went there, they found a second woman who had suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head. That woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The two women apparently lived together. The fight happened in their home Saturday afternoon and the woman who is now in the hospital fled to a neighbors home for help.

The Fluvanna County Sheriff's Department is leading the investigation into what happened.

No names will be released until family is notified.
