Deputies investigate shooting and suicide

(WEAU) - Adams County deputies are investigating a shooting and suicide.

It happened just before 4 a.m. Monday morning on West Trout Valley Road, east of Big Flats. Deputies say Chari Dayton, 28, was shot through her bedroom window by someone outside.

When sheriff's deputies arrived, they found Dayton's ex-boyfriend Mark Schaetzka, 38, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound outside her home.

The department says Dayton was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators say Schaetzka was arrested the night before, after he and Dayton were involved in a domestic disturbance. He was released after posting bond.
