    The man fired two shots around 10:10 a.m., killing his wife, police said. He then turned the gun on himself inside the hospital room, according to Camden County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Jason Laughlin.

    The woman died while her husband was treated for his injuries at Cooper University Hospital, according to authorities. He is currently in critical condition.

    A 63-year-old Glendora, N.J. man was visiting his wife at Kennedy Memorial hospital when he killed her and then shot himself, according to authorities. A short time later, police discovered another body at the couple's home.

    Hospital officials said the alleged shooter's wife was at Kennedy for a non-life threatening illness, but declined to provide further detail, citing privacy laws.

    The hospital wasn't evacuated, since the shooting was considered contained.

    According to neighbors, Raymond Wychowanec recently sold another home to pay for his wife's medical bills.

    "One time I had to actually call 911," said Erica Carr, one of the neighbors. "His wife was in there screaming and he wasn't home. He must've been working. She actually fell inside the house."
