A man who was found dead at a house in Bircotes in the early hours of this morning (Friday) suffered suspected shotgun injuries, police have confirmed.
Notts Police said that the 37-year-old was found in the bedroom of a house in Galway Road around 12.50am.
A 33-year-old woman, found at the address, was taken to hospital also suffering from shotgun injuries.
Her condition was initially said to be potentially life threatening, but she is now described as being in a serious but stable condition.
