A woman in her 50s has been shot and a murder investigation has been launched in west Somerset.
Police were called to a property in Winsford after reports of a gunshot at about 2.30pm on Saturday 22 February.
Officers say the victim was seriously injured when they arrived, and despite treatment she died shortly after.
A 67 year old man - who is in custody - was also injured by a shotgun. He was airlifted to hospital with life threatening injuries and now remains in a stable but critical condition.
A second woman, who is being treated as a key witness, was found nearby and uninjured.
Investigations are underway at the property and a cordon remains in place.
This is a very serious incident in which a woman has lost her life and we are deploying family liaison officers to support the next of kin.
