MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was killed in an overnight shooting in Middleborough and an armed man spotted in the driveway of the home was shot and injured by police.

Police responded to the home just after midnight Friday and found the woman’s husband and another person performing CPR. She appeared to be suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Officers were told there was a man with a gun outside.

Police spotted the man with a long-barreled firearm in the driveway. He was ordered several times to drop the weapon and pointed it at police, prompting officers to open fire. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

No names were released, but authorities say the man was staying at the home where the woman was shot.
