Bowling Green Police Investigate Shooting


The Bowling Green Police Division is investigating a shooting that occurred in the early morning hours of October 13, 2018 at 2055 E. Napoleon Rd., Bowling Green, OH. Shortly after 1 AM, patrol units were dispatched to a report of a person that had been shot with a handgun after a 911 call came from the residence. The victim, identified as Kyren Palmer, 22 years old of Cincinnati, OH, was transported by ambulance to St. Vincent’s of Toledo where he is listed in serious condition.

Patrol units had responded to the residence earlier in the evening for a report of a large party. Responding officers indicated the music was very loud, people were yelling, and they detected an odor of marijuana emitting from an open window of the residence. The gathering was subsequently shut down and a resident was cited for a nuisance party violation. Approximately 1 hour later, patrol units were dispatched to the same address for the reported shooting. It is reported that there was a physical altercation between Palmer and several other unidentified individuals which led to Palmer being shot in the left abdomen with a 9mm handgun. The scene was processed by Bowling Green PD detectives and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with further information is urged to contact Det. Brian Houser with the Bowling Green Police Division at 419-352-2571 or Wood County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-54-CRIME (419-352-0077). Callers are eligible for cash rewards up to $1,000 for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of perpetrators of crime.


The Mission of the Bowling Green Police Division is to improve the quality of life in the city’s neighborhoods, to involve the community in decisions which directly affect them and to provide the necessary services identified by the community as important.
