Naples Daily News, July 6, 2011

A Golden Gate Estates man entered a hospital patient's room in Naples, FL and fatally shot his estranged wife before shooting and wounding himself early Tuesday evening, Collier County sheriff's officials said. Christine Ann Moretz, 53, was killed while visiting a patient at Physician's Regional-Pine Ridge about 5:40 p.m., Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Michelle Batten said. The shooter was identified as 54-year-old Jeffrey L. Moretz, of the 6000 block of English Oaks Lane, Batten said. After turning the gun on himself, Jeffrey Moretz was secured by hospital staff and transported by helicopter to another hospital. The hospital was shut down for about two hours following the shooting. It was unclear which hospital Jeffrey Moretz was flown to. He was in intensive care Tuesday night, Batten said.
