Police believe shotgun death man 'was the offender'

Police believe a Nottinghamshire man shot a woman at his home before turning the gun on himself, officers revealed today.

Detectives investigating the death of the 37-year-old man in Bircotes say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the shooting.

Det Ch Insp Mel Bowden said they believe a 33-year-old woman, who lived with the man at the same address, was "the victim" in the incident.

She was found with shotgun injuries and was today in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

We are satisfied that the injured female was a victim in this incident.

Until a post mortem examination is carried out next week we will not be in a position to formally identify the deceased.

However, we believe he was the offender in this case and will not be looking for any further suspects.

– DCI Mel Bowden, Nottinghamshire Police
