Oxford (AP) — Connecticut State Police say they've captured a man wanted in connection with the killing of his wife and the wounding of another woman in an early morning shooting in Oxford.

Lt. J. Paul Vance says 46-year-old Scott Gellatly was taken into custody without incident Wednesday at an eatery in Winsted.

Vance says Gellatly entered the home near Swan Lake at about 6 a.m. and shot his estranged wife, 32-year-old Lori Gellatly, and another woman. A spokesman for the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says Lori Gellatly was an environmental analyst for the agency.

The other woman is in critical condition at Saint Mary's Hospital in Waterbury.

The shootings sparked a large manhunt and prompted school and hospital lockdowns.
