A domestic incident in Orange County ended Tuesday with a police chief in the hospital and a suspect dead from a gunshot wound.
State police say officers from the village of Maybrook and the town of Montgomery responded to a call about a domestic incident at 812 Abby Ave. in Maybrook around 9 a.m.
When they arrived, gunfire was exchanged with a man identified as 28-year-old Anthony Bostick. 
Village of Maybrook Police Chief Arnold "Butch" Amthor was shot in the shoulder and taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Newburgh.
