The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office says 63-year-old Raymond Wychowanec shot his wife Denise, 62,  in a second-floor room at Kennedy University Hospital in Stratford around 10:10 a.m. after visiting for about half-an-hour.  He turned the gun on himself as staff came to the room when they heard gunshots.

No motive was offered for the shooting.

The prosecutor’s office said that the body of the couple’s son, 35-year-old Ryan Wychowanec, was found in the couple’s Glendora home several hours later.  He was also shot.  No motive has been given for that shooting, and it’s not clear if  Wychowanec shot his son as well.

Raymond was flown to Cooper University for treatment for life threatening injuries. 

CBS 3 reports that the hospital was on a lockdown that has since been lifted.
