DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A woman shot and killed her terminally ill husband at a Florida hospital Saturday, then barricaded herself in his room for four hours before surrendering, Daytona Beach officials said.

Ellen Gilland, 76, told officers that her husband, Jerry Gilland, 77, had been ill for some time and that they had planned the shooting together, police spokeswoman Carrie McCallister said.

After shooting her husband at about 11:30 a.m., she refused to come out until about 3:30 p.m. after negotiating with police, McCallister said. Helen Gilland did not harm herself, no one else was hurt. Part of the hospital was evacuated, and some doctors, nurses and others hid in locked closets and rooms.

McCallister said no charges were immediately announced.

AdventHealth representatives did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
