[Excerpts] ...Suffolk police said orders of protection were issued in April and September against Darryl Fowler, 43, arrested in his hospital bed Wednesday at Stony Brook University Medical Center and charged with trying to murder his wife... Police said Fowler, who retired from the NYPD 10 years ago, burst through the locked door of the Middle Island home the couple once shared just before 11 p.m. Tuesday. He then went upstairs and shot her as she lay in bed. Minutes after his wife's teenage daughter called 911, Fowler was at the wheel of a sport utility vehicle on Bartlett Road a short distance away when he sideswiped an ambulance rushing to assist her, swerved off the road and crashed head-on into a tree... Michelle, 46, survived the shooting and was airlifted to Stony Brook... In April, police said, Darryl Fowler called 911 from the house and reported his wife bit him; she told officers he'd pushed her, said Det. Sgt. James Madden. They agreed to resolve the matter, and no charges were filed. The next day, a Suffolk family court judge issued Darryl Fowler a stay-away order. Police were again called there on Sept. 28 by a 911 call from Michelle; the report indicated Fowler damaged the front door when entering, police said. Fowler, who no longer lived at the home, was arrested and charged with criminal contempt for violating the order of protection and criminal mischief. The next day, a Suffolk criminal court judge placed a second order of protection against him. Michelle's ex-husband, Wayne Cummings of Coram, said she was shot five times, but was expected to survive. "She's the mother of my two kids; she's a good mother, so thank God," he said. "Did she deserve this? No. It's just a bad situation." The couple have two teenage daughters... Fowler was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree burglary, assault, aggravated criminal contempt and criminal use of a weapon. Police said he will be arraigned in the hospital bed if he does not get medical clearance to go to court. [Full article here]
