        ANDERSON TWP. — The daughter of an elderly patient fatally shot in his room Tuesday night at Mercy Anderson Hospital has been charged with his murder.

        Vicki L. Glick, 51, of Pierce Township, Clermont County, is accused of shooting Robert L. Price, 75, of Loveland, several times about 6:50 p.m. on the hospital's second floor.

        She arrived at the hospital shortly before the shooting and is not a hospital staff member, authorities said.

        After the shooting, she left her father's room and was taken into custody by hospital security and responding Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies.

        Ms. Glick is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center and is scheduled to appear in court today at 9 a.m.

        The motive for the shooting and the weapon used was not disclosed.

        “I was walking down the hall and I heard them calling, "Code blue! Code blue!'” said Joyce Anderson of Mount Washington, who was at the hospital visiting another patient.

        Another visitor asked the sheriff's deputy if security would be increased at the facility. He said that would be up to the hospital.

        The incident drew eight cruisers, detectives and the sheriff's evidence collection
