LUDLOW, Mass. (AP) - Ludlow police say a man is dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound after a domestic dispute.

Police say the man fired 10 or more shots at the home of his estranged wife at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

The woman, her two children and niece were in the home, but hid in a back room and were not hurt. Police helped them escape through a window.

Police say the man shot himself before officers could talk to him and was found dead in the back of the home.

No names were released.
