Update, 2:20 p.m. WILTON, Conn. - A 47-year-old man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after reports of a shooting Monday morning in Wilton, police said. 

The man's wife, 39, also suffered a gunshot wound, said police, who have released few details on the incident that occurred in a home on Grumman Road. 

The couple's names have not been released. 

Shots were reported around 8 a.m., Monday. The woman had gone to a neighboring home to call 911, police said. 

Officers discovered the man in a home adjacent from where the woman was found. He was taken to Norwalk Hospital with "life-threatening" injuries, police said at press conference Monday afternoon. 

The woman also was taken to Norwalk Hospital but there was no update on her condition Monday afternoon. 

Police said a rifle was used but no charges had been filed in the case as of 2 p.m., Monday. 

Several news organizations have asked for the tape of the 911 call, but police said they cannot release it at the moment because it is important evidence. 

Neighbor Nancy Gorkin said she heard a woman screaming at about the time the incident was reported and then saw emergency vehicles arriving. "It's not a good situation," Gorkin said.

Gorkin said the people living in the home have rented it for about a year and a half. "They were friendly enough," Gorkin said, recalling how the neighbors helped clear a tree from her property that fell during Hurricane Sandy.

The Connecticut State Police Major Crimes Unit is assisting Wilton police with the investigation.
