AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio police say a 66-year-old man entered the intensive care unit of Akron General Medical Center and shot his 65-year-old wife while standing at her bedside.

Akron police told The Associated Press early Sunday, August 5th that the woman is in critical condition.

Police say John Wise, of Massillon, entered the hospital shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday and went to see his wife, Barbara, in the intensive care unit, where she had been admitted a few days earlier. Authorities say Wise pulled out a handgun and shot his wife of 45 years.

Hospital spokesman Jim Gosky says one shot was fired.

Hospital security apprehended Wise, and police say no one else was injured. There was no immediate word on a motive.

Police say Wise was being held for attempted murder, and is expected to be arraigned Monday.
