The Botetourt County Sheriff's Office has released new information about a shooting that happened Thursday night.

Investigators were called to a home on Carvins Cove Road in the Bennett Spring area around 8:09 p.m. Thursday.

When deputies arrived, they found 43-year-old Donna B. Hahn had been shot in the chest, and killed.

Investigators began looking for her estranged husband, 47-year-old James Alan Hahn.  Botetourt County Sheriff Ronnie Sprinkle said his office had received previous calls about the couple and domestic disturbances.

A search for his cell phone tracked Hahn to a cell tower on Smith Mountain Lake Parkway in Bedford County.  Deputies found Hahn in his car, and he had killed himself.
