Bloomington Police Investigate Burglarly and Shooting

BLOOMINGTON - SEPTEMBER 1, 2022 - On September 1st at approximately 5:10 a.m., the Monroe County Central Emergency Dispatcher Center received a 911 call from a 35-year-old man reporting a burglary in progress at his residence in the 1700 block of S Pinestone Court. While officers were en route, the caller claimed that the suspect had busted in the window to his bedroom and was attempting to gain entry, so he had shot at the person. The person attempting to enter the residence then reportedly fled the scene and was last seen running northbound from the area.


Officers arrived at the residence and did indeed locate a broken window in the bedroom of the residence. Investigators also located several bullet holes around the broken window from rounds that had been fired from inside the home. At approximately 5:21 a.m., the Dispatch Center received another 911 call from a man claiming that he had been shot. The caller advised Dispatch that he was in Switchyard Park at the basketball courts near the Bloomington Police Substation. Officers and ambulance personnel responded to Switchyard Park and located a 39-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. It was determined that the man was the individual that had been shot in the 1700 block of S Pinestone Court and that he had not been shot at the park. It is believed that he had driven himself to the park after fleeing from the residence on foot. The man was transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital by ambulance and was later transferred to an Indianapolis hospital for further treatment of his injuries.

Both individuals involved in the incident were known to one-another. The investigation remains ongoing, and, at this time, no charges have been filed. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, the report will be forwarded to the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office for review to determine if criminal charges are warranted. There is no further information that will be released at this time.
