LENOX TWP. (WWJ) - A Macomb County woman is in critical condition after authorities say she was shot by her husband, who then turned the gun on himself.

What the Macomb County Sheriff's Office is calling an attempted murder and suicide happened Saturday night, at the Macomb Storage facility on Main Street in New Haven, a village in Lenox Township. 

According to investigators, at around 10:40 p.m., 25-year old Brandon Dodd of New Baltimore shot his 24-year-old wife four times -- in the abdomen, buttocks and shoulder -- before shooting himself. The woman managed to call 911, and both she and Dodd were taken to a local hospital where the man was pronounced dead. 

The woman, whose name has not been released, remained hospitalized Monday. 

The Sheriff's Office has not released any further information, including what may have led to the shooting, as an investigation continues.
