DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Pinellas County sheriff's deputies say a
patient in a hospital's critical care unit pulled out a gun and
pointed it at a nurse.

According to a press release, 74-year-old Paul Schein was
charged with attempted murder.

Schein won't be booked into the county jail until he is medically cleared at Mease-Dunedin
Hospital.

Deputies say a second nurse was able to disarm the man when he
aimed it at the first nurse. Schein was detained by hospital
security until deputies arrived Monday afternoon.
