    PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - A woman was arrested Tuesday after her husband woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible headache and later learned he had a bullet lodged in his head.

    St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputies initially thought Michael Eugene Moylan had been hit by a stray bullet, but later realized the couple's story did not match up, Sheriff Ken Mascara said.

    April Moylan, 39, was arrested Tuesday and was in the process of being charged with attempted murder, Mascara said.

    Moylan, 45, woke up at 4:30 a.m. and thought he had suffered an aneurism or that his wife had elbowed him in his sleep, authorities said.

    His wife drove him to the hospital where doctors said a bullet had lodged behind his right ear. Authorities obtained a search warrant for the couple's home, located in an upscale gated community, and later arrested the wife, Mascara said.

    Evidence indicated that Moylan had been shot at close range by someone in the house and it was clear there were inconsistencies with the couple's story, Mascara said.

    April Moylan eventually told authorities she accidentally shot her husband. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.

    "How can this guy be shot, not know that he was shot in bed and then walk into a hospital room. It was just amazing to all of us," Mascara said.

    Michael Moylan did not undergo surgery, but was transferred to a trauma facility, authorities said. His condition as not known.

    I remember a long long time ago seeing some journalist dude on a show (Oprah?) who went to Africa and got shot in the head with an AK. The bullet entered the center of his forehead and went right between the halves of his brain, causing no damage.

    Wife blames shooting on burglar alarm


    The Associated Press

    PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A woman held on a gun charge claims she accidentally shot her husband in the head after becoming startled when the couple's burglar alarm activated, authorities said Wednesday.

    April Moylan, 39, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and ordered held Wednesday on $75,000 bond, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.

    Prosecutors were not immediately seeking additional charges.

    "The state attorney's office continues to review the facts of the case, and that review is ongoing," Sheriff Ken Mascara said Wednesday. "That means it is possible there could be additional charges in the future."

    It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.

    Michael Eugene Moylan, 45, initially told authorities he awoke early Tuesday morning with a severe headache. The couple went to a hospital where a bullet was discovered in the man's head.

    Investigators initially thought Moylan had been hit by a stray bullet, but later realized the couple's story did not match up, Mascara said.

    The couple finally told authorities that April Moylan sleeps with a loaded .32-caliber revolver under her pillow. They said that when the burglar alarm sounded at about 4 a.m. Tuesday, she grabbed the gun and it accidentally discharged, shooting her husband in the head just behind his ear.

    Mascara said the couple told authorities they couldn't simply call 911 because both are convicted felons and are not allowed to own a gun so they concocted the headache story.

    April Moylan previously had been convicted of sale and delivery of cocaine in Palm Beach County, Mascara said. Her husband's criminal record was not immediately available.

    He was recovering Wednesday at a hospital. His wound was not considered life-threatening, the sheriff's office said.
