A 94-year-old man fatally shot his 93-year-old wife and then shot himself in a hospital room in St. Peters, police said. Authorities were called around 11 a.m. to Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital where they found the woman and her husband, who was alive but seriously injured, police said. Anna M. Bode, of St. Charles, had been a patient at the hospital for several days when police said her husband shot her and then himself while they were alone in a room. Authorities did not yet know how and why the shooting occurred, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Melissa Doss. Nobody else was in the hospital room at the time of the shooting, and nobody else was in danger, Doss said.
