SALEM (CBS) – A man is dead and a woman was seriously injured in an apparent attempted murder-suicide in Salem. Police said it happened at 3 Technology Way shortly after 5 p.m. Monday.

When police arrived, they found 55-year-old Richard Lorman of Wilton, N.H. dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. A 33-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to the head. She was taken to a Boston hospital with life threatening injuries.
