[Excerpts] ...Someone at a home on Stillwater Drive, just outside of Oviedo, called 911 and hung up around 2:30 Thursday morning. When a dispatcher called back, a child answered the phone and said someone had been shot. Just before the shooting, the couple inside the home had been arguing and a nearby relative came over to offer help, but the argument quickly escalated, deputies said. "At one point in time a woman living inside the house retreated to, we believe, a bedroom, came back armed with two handguns that were placed behind her back, and actually shot a man inside the home," Seminole County Sheriff's Lt. Dennis Lemma said. There were two children in the home at the time of the shooting. They were not injured.

    Wife accused of shooting police officer husband to appear in court today

    The woman accused of shooting her husband, an Orlando police officer, is scheduled to appear before a judge at 1:30 p.m. today for her initial appearance, jail records show.

    Fatima Navicky was booked into the John Polk Correctional Facility and is being held without bond.

    Her husband, Charles Navicky, said that when he saw Fatima Navicky draw two guns from behind her back and start shooting Thursday, he feared her intentions were to kill him and their two children.

    Seminole County deputy sheriffs arrived at the couple's Oviedo home Thursday and found Charles Navicky, 35, holding a blood-soaked towel to his forehead. A .38-caliber revolver and a 9mm semiautomatic pistol lay in blood in the kitchen sink.

    "My wife shot me in the head," the 14-year veteran of the Orlando Police Department told deputies. "I never thought I would be a victim of domestic abuse."

    Their two children were home but were not injured, said Lt. Dennis Lemma of the Sheriff's Office.

    The officer is recovering at Orlando Regional Medical Center from wounds to his arm and forehead. Fatima Navicky, 35, is in police custody and undergoing a mental-health investigation at Winter Park Hospital.

    Charles Navicky told deputies his wife had taken OxyContin, a powerful prescription painkiller, the agency's report shows. She faces charges of attempted murder and domestic violence, said sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Cannaday.

    Deputies and Oviedo police surrounded the home at 2:28 a.m., after a dispatcher reported hearing screams and shouts for help during a 911 call placed from the house but disconnected.

    The officer said he and his wife had argued into the early morning. At some point, Charles Navicky asked a neighbor, who is also a relative, to intervene.

    But "[Fatima] walked away from her husband and into the bedroom," Lemma said. "She returned with two firearms hidden behind her back and shot him."

    Lemma said the weapons were not issued by the Orlando Police Department.

    Records show the couple married in 2001. There were no Seminole County Sheriff's Office or court records of any domestic violence. Neighbors said the Navickys appeared to be a happy couple, whose kids played with other children in the neighborhood. Fatima Navicky, a stay-at-home mom, often shared laughs with other neighbors over lunch.

    "She was acting normal," neighbor Lauma Tome said. She and Fatima Navicky had lunch Wednesday. "She was fine. She was happy."

    The women are longtime friends, Tome said. She said she never heard Fatima Navicky complain about problems with her marriage, and she saw no signs of discord.

    "Very nice people, both of them," she said.

    Jail records show Fatima Navicky had spent time behind bars.

    According to Orange County Jail records, she was arrested in Feb. 2004 on charges of grand theft. A Wal-Mart employee said Fatima Navicky tried to walk out without paying for $430 in merchandise, according to the arrest affidavit.

    Court records show that in 2005 she agreed to pretrial diversion, a program defendants complete to avoid prosecution. On May 1, Fatima Navicky was scheduled to appear in Orange County court to expunge her record.

    Sgt. Barbara Jones of the Orlando Police Department said, "Our thoughts and prayers are with [Navicky] and his family during this difficult time."

Fatima Navicky had thrown things at her husband in their bedroom, according to her arrest report. A relative who lived nearby came over and tried to calm her, but she awoke the children, brought them into the front room then retrieved two guns and fired at the head of her husband, according to the arrest report. He managed to duck and suffered only the graze above his right eye. As he and the relative tried to wrestle the guns away from her, she fired another round, the report said. That one hit the husband's right arm. Officer Navicky told deputies he had been afraid that his wife would take the children out of the country. He told one officer that he feared that she might kill the whole family... Officer Navicky also told deputies that his wife had been addicted to narcotics and alcohol for a year.

Fatima Navicky was taken to Winter Park Hospital after deputies handcuffed her and she became unresponsive... She told them that after the children went to bed, her husband was showing her how to handle a gun, should an intruder ever enter the house, and it went off by accident, according to her arrest report. She told deputies she did not remember anything after that...Seminole County Judge Carmine Bravo today set her bail at $250,000. He also ordered her to stay away from her home, her husband and her children.
