AKRON, Ohio, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- 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.
His 65-year-old wife Barbara was injured, but her condition wasn't released by the Akron General Medical Center.
The woman had been admitted to the hospital several days ago with an undisclosed, life-threatening condition, the broadcaster said.

The incident was being treated as a domestic dispute, WOIO-TV, Cleveland, said.
