Police said Glen Betterly was shot in the head at his home on Orange Avenue. He woke up and saw the blood, but didn't know it was from a gunshot.
Betterly went to work and then to the hospital, where they discovered a bullet lodged in his brain.
When police went to tell his wife, they found her dead of an apparent suicide.
Neighbors said, like the wounded husband, they didn't know what was going on.
"He just asked me if i heard any strange sounds," said resident Dennis Kucera.
Betterly had the bullet removed and is in stable condition at the Halifax Medical Center.
