Posted October 16th, 2013 @ 12:20pm

A Northeast Iowa man accused of shooting his wife multiple times faces an attempted murder charge.

Oelwein Police responded to a report of gunfire at a home just before 7 pm Tuesday.

Shortly after, 44 year old Myron Meador came out of the residence with self-inflicted gunshot injuries.

Police then went inside to find his 38 year old wife, Nicki, with multiple gunshot wounds.

Jill Kasperie from our news partner Channel 9 says both were taken to a local hospital before being transferred to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Their conditions are unknown.

Other charges are pending against Myron.
