An Ohio man is charged with attempted murder after police said he went to the intensive care unit where his wife of 45 years was being treated and shot her.
The shocking incident happened shortly before 9:00 p.m. Saturday, WEWS-TV reported.
John Wise, 66, walked into his 65-year-old wife Barbara’s room in the ICU at Akron General Hospital and shot her, cops said.
She had been admitted a few days earlier with an unspecified condition that doctors said was life-threatening.
She survived the shooting and was listed in critical condition Sunday, according to WKYC-TV. Her doctor was in the room with her, but was not hurt.
A security guard was able to wrestle the gun away from Wise, and he was booked into the Summit County Jail.
Akron General spokesman Jim Gosky told WKYC that the shooting was apparently a domestic incident.
