Cody P. Ahonen, 21, was arrested and charged with first-degree aggravated domestic assault after a 6 a.m. fight at 978 Gates Road.

The shotgun was found inside a home near 978 Gates Road, police said.
Ahonen is scheduled to be arraigned in Rutland criminal court Monday.MORE IN This Just InMIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College students are safe after a massive fire destroyed much of their... Full StoryThe Associated Press Full StoryWe've all been there. Full Story
