A man was found dead Wednesday morning at a Sarpy County home and a woman taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Sarpy County Sheriff's office investigators were on scene at a home in the Lakewood Villages, just south of Highway 370 and 48th Street, after getting a call around 10:30 a.m. to check on the well being of the residents of the home. Upon arrival, investigators said, they found a 67-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the head in the basement of a home; and a 68-year-old man dead in the garage.  

The woman was taken by the Papillion Fire Department to Nebraska Medical Center in critical condition.
