DUNEDIN, Fla. – 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.
