Burlington County investigators are looking into why a man shot his wife multiple times Wednesday morning and then took his own life in Edgewater Park Township.

Burlington County Prosecutors say 57-year old Gregory Martin shot his wife Michelle Moses-Martin, 46, multiple times in the chest inside their Roosevelt Avenue home around 1:00 am just before police arrived on the scene.

Investigators say he later went onto the front porch briefly, and then back inside where he shot himself just before 3:00 am where members of the New Jersey State Police Technical Emergency and Mission Specialists Unit made entry into the house and found the husband.

His wife underwent surgery at Cooper University Hospital in Camden and is currently in critical but stable condition.

Prosecutors discredit reports of a standoff between the T.E.A.M.S. Unit and Martin saying it didn't happen.

Gregory Martin was retired from the New Jersey Department of Corrections and was employed by Edgewater Park Township as a school crossing guard.

This incident was investigated by the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office, the Edgewater Park Township Police Department and the New Jersey State Police, with assistance from the Beverly City Police Department, Delanco Township Police Department and Willingboro Township Police Department.
