    Authorities say two police officers have been shot in Connecticut by a man they suspect shot his wife first.

    New Haven police say two officers responded to a domestic shooting at the multifamily home Saturday morning.

    When the officers arrived, the 51-year-old victim had fled the home after being shot by a relative who authorities believe is her husband. She was taken to a hospital and was last listed in critical condition.

    Police say the two officers were shot after they tried to find the suspect. They are expected to be OK.

    A SWAT team moved in and evacuated other residents of the home.

    Police say the suspect, identified as 51-year-old John Douglas Monroe, pointed a gun at SWAT officers who then shot Monroe in the basement. He is hospitalized with serious injuries.
