Jailers were keeping an 88-year-old man on a suicide watch after he was arrested for allegedly opening fire at a Carson City hospital and critically wounding his wife, authorities said.
Dresser, who recently bought the gun, came to his wife’s room in the rehabilitation ward, where she was alone, and shot her in the chest, Furlong said. No details of why she was admitted to the hospital were released, but officials don’t suspect foul play.
The woman was a patient in a third-floor room when she was shot around 11:30 a.m.
The woman’s injuries are considered life-threatening, and she was transferred to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Furlong said. Her name and age were not immediately released.
Dresser was booked into the Carson City Jail on suspicion of attempted murder and was on suicide watch, the sheriff said.
What in the world was this all about? Hopefully his wife is able to pull through!
