There is no active shooter or threat to the public in Bowling Green, according to a police department spokesperson.

“Again, this is not an active shooter situation,” the Bowling Green Police Division said in a social media post at 12:40 p.m.

“We have set up a perimeter around the suspect’s apartment and are waiting for the authority to make entry to determine if he’s inside.”
