Police trying to find man who shot his neighbor near Stinesville Monday morning

STINESVILLE - NOVEMBER 13, 2023 - In the early morning hours of November 13, 2023, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office received a call from the IU Health Bloomington Police Department reporting a male arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound.

  The victim and a separate witness, who had driven the victim to the hospital, reported they were at the victim’s property in Stinesville, IN, gathering some items.  The suspect, a neighbor known to the victim, came onto the victim’s property, and the victim saw the suspect pull a gun out and then place it in his pocket.

  The victim reported the suspect started shoving him, so he retrieved pepper spray from his pocket, and tried to spray the suspect but it didn’t work.  The victim then saw the suspect fumbling for the gun, so he took off running.  He heard one gunshot, which struck him in the buttocks area.

  Attempts to locate the suspect have been unsuccessful.  The suspect has been identified as 64-year-old Bret Sherrow, white male, 5’10” and 200 pounds.  If you know the whereabouts of Mr. Sherrow, do not approach him, as he may be armed and dangerous, but please contact the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Central Dispatch at (812) 349-2781. 

Charges listed are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
