Police: Bowling Green homeowner shoots man during break-in


BOWLING GREEN — A Bowling Green homeowner shot a man after he broke into the resident’s home and threatened him, according to Bowling Green police. 

The Liberty Street homeowner called 911 shortly after 1 a.m. Friday and told officials he shot his 9 mm handgun toward two men, whom he said broke into his home, according to Bowling Green Police Lt. Daniel Mancuso. The two men then fled the home, police said. 

The threatening suspect was shot three times — twice in the arm and once in the lower back — the lieutenant said. He was located about a block and a half away near North Main Street and Evers Road. His injuries were described as not life-threatening. 

He was transported to Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center, according to a Bowling Green police report. 

According to the report, only one of the two men were located. 

Nothing from the home was stolen, Lieutenant Mancuso said. 

Property records identify the homeowner as Terry Stetler. Mr. Stetler declined comment Friday. 

Lieutenant Mancuso declined to name the suspects, as they have not been charged. No charges had been filed as of Friday afternoon.

The case remains under investigation. 

Anyone with information should contact the Bowling Green Police Department at 419-352-2571 or the Wood County Crime Stopper program at 419-352-0077.
