BG woman cited after shooting herself


A Bowling Green woman has been cited after she accidentally shot herself.

On Thursday at 7:20 a.m., Bowling Green police were dispatched to the 1000 block of Patridge Lane on the report of an accidental shooting.

Amy Vasko stepped outside the home, holding a towel around her left hand.

She told officers she was unloading one of her father’s guns when she accidentally shot herself through her left index finger, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

BG EMS arrived tended to Vasko’s wound before transporting her to a hospital in Toledo.

A family member told police Vasko was photographing weapons to sell in Findlay, according to the report.

Medics later reported Vasko told them she accidentally shot her hand trying to photograph a .32 caliber revolver.

Vasko, 45, was cited for pointing and discharging weapons.
