STRATFORD, N.J. - A dramatic scene unfolded in New Jersey Wednesday when police say a man shot his wife before turning the gun on himself.
This happened around 10:00 a.m. at Kennedy University Hospital on Laurel Road in Stratford, Camden County.
Police say Raymond Wychowanec, 63, was visiting his wife, Denise, 62, a patient at the hospital, when he shot and killed her.
Witnesses told police that Wychowanec shot his wife multiple times, then he shot himself.
Wychowanec survived the self-inflicted gunshot and was flown to the trauma center at Cooper Hospital in Camden. He was listed in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.
The Camden County prosecutor says police officers later found the couple's son, Ryan Wychowanec, 35, dead inside their home in the 800 block of Price Avenue in Glendora.
Detectives are working to determine a connection between the two shootings.
New Jersey has sued gun manufacturer Sig Sauer, saying it sold defective handguns to the state police.Read More »
