NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - 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.
