Domestic Attempted Murder in Akron Ohio Hospital reports

An Ohio man was in custody in Akron Sunday after allegedly shooting his wife of 45 years as a doctor was tending to her in intensive care, police said.

John Wise, 66, was charged with attempted aggravated murder after the 9 p.m. Saturday incident, WEWS-TV, Cleveland, reported.

Police said a doctor was attending to the woman when a man with a gun came into the room and fired once. A security guard then wrestled the gun away from the man and held him until police arrived.
They think it was a case of domestic murder. In other words, guns are bad news for women, once again.

What do you think?


  1. This case puzzles me. I wonder if his wife has a terminal illness and is in a great deal of pain. In his mind maybe he thought it was a mercy to put her out of her suffering? But even so . . .

  2. There seems to be a discrepancy between the Blog post headline and the facts. There was no murder.

    1. No - she died. It was murder; don't know why the article didn't include it, but she died not long after the shooting.

  3. Something is not correct with this story. That hospital is a gun free zone and they have signs up that will stop that from happening.
