[Excerpts] The former city police officer who police say shot his estranged wife several times in the Middle Island home they once shared pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Saturday. Darryl Fowler, 43, who left the NYPD 10 years ago, burst into the house through a locked door just before 11 p.m. Tuesday and shot his wife, Michelle, 46, five times as she lay in bed, prosecutors say. She survived and remains hospitalized at Stony Brook University Medical Center. At Fowler's arraignment in First District Court in Central Islip, a Suffolk prosecutor said Fowler "kicked in the door" of the home before opening fire. He drove away, only to sideswipe an ambulance rushing to the scene and crash into a tree, the prosecutor said. Fowler was found with a revolver in his waistband, officials said. Fowler, who was treated at Stony Brook for a head injury, was charged with attempted murder, burglary, assault, aggravated criminal contempt and criminal use of a weapon. He was ordered held on $1 million bail or $2 million bond. A grand jury is expected to hear the case this week. Orders of protection were issued against Fowler in April and on Sept. 29, stemming from two domestic disturbances at the house... About a dozen Fowler family members and supporters attended the hearing. Afterward, an elderly man whom Doddato identified as Fowler's father, Teddy, sat down on a bench outside the courtroom and appeared to have trouble breathing... Another man in the group who declined to give his name said, "Our family is sorry for the other family, Michelle's family." Doddato said members of the Fowler family "want to extend their hopes that Mrs. Fowler makes a full recovery."... [Full article here]

[Excerpts] Darryl Fowler wrote about learning from bad relationships on his Facebook page Tuesday morning. Hours later, Suffolk Police say, the retired NYPD cop entered the Middle Island home of his estranged wife and shot her multiple times with a .38-caliber handgun. Det. Sgt. James Madden of the Sixth Squad in Selden said Wednesday that Michelle Fowler, 46, was shot inside her Dorado Court home shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday night. Her husband then attempted to flee the scene but his 2001 GMC Yukon 4x4 sideswiped an ambulance headed to treat his wife for her injuries, police said, preventing him from getting away... Hours before the shooting, Ms. Fowler had filed a complaint about her estranged husband at the Sixth Precinct, reporting that he had just violated an order of protection by telephoning her, police said. The shooting follows a recent history of domestic disturbances at the home Ms. Fowler shared with her two teenage daughters daughter from a previous relationship and, until recently, her husband. Mr. Fowler, 46, who had recently returned to live in his hometown of Amityville, was charged Sept. 28 in another instance of domestic violence. In that incident he was charged with criminal mischief for damaging property, second-degree criminal contempt for disobeying a court order and fourth-degree criminal mischief for preventing an emergency call. Det. Sgt. Madden said police began actively looking for Mr. Fowler after Ms. Fowler notified them Tuesday evening. After the interview, Ms. Fowler was offered safe housing and a panic alarm, but she declined and left the precinct... Mr. Fowler has been charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault, aggravated criminal contempt and first-degree criminal use of a weapon for his role in the incident... Mr. Fowler, who advertises his services online as a handyman, had recently been hired on a per diem basis as a test proctor at Suffolk County Community College. Mary Lou Araneo, vice president for institutional advancement at the college, said he had worked just one day before the shooting. A peek at Mr. Fowler's page on the social networking site Facebook reveals recent struggles in his life, including posts from himself and others about his marriage breaking up and financial difficulties...

    I was looking for another article and found this blog. Michelle Fowler is doing great. We grew up next door to each other. While my parents and I now live in NC, my mother went to visit her a couple of months ago. She is about to go back to work this summer and my mother said that her appearance shows no signs of the fact that she was left to die that night. My mother said she looks wonderful and still has her sense of humor. Michelle was always quite comical. Her ex-husband pleaded guilty to attempted murder and other lesser charges.
