State police are investigating the death of a 30 year old woman in her home in Danville.

Police say the woman's husband, who is a Hendrick's county jailer, came home last night around 8:30 and heard a gunshot. He says he found his wife, Melissa Burton, shot. That's when he says he performed CPR to no success.

The couple's three children were home at the time, but not harmed.

Danville police asked the State police to come in and help in the investigation.
