A Wilton couple suffered injuries after a shotgun went off during an incident on the morning of Nov. 27 at their home.

Garcia was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment of his injuries. He had been in critical condition for several days after the incident, but was last reported in fair condition. Michelle Garcia sustained non-life threatening facial injuries.
Police are still investigating the case and have not revealed what prompted the struggle over the weapon.
