Man who allegedly shot wife in Brownsburg arrested on attempted murder charge

BROWNSBURG, Ind. – A man who police say shot his wife in Brownsburg Wednesday morning has been arrested on an attempted murder charge.

Police say they apprehended 34-year-old Ken Bolin on the south side of Indianapolis shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday. Brownsburg police Capt. Jennifer Barrett said Bolin was taken into custody without incident, but did not turn himself in. Officials are not sure at this time if the owners of the home he was found in wanted him there.

Instigators believe Bolin shot his wife Tiffany in a home in the 600 block of Alpha Ave. and took off.

Police say two children, a 6-year-old and 13-year-old, were inside the home during the shooting and were unharmed. Officers believe the 13-year-old was the one who called 911.

The victim had eight gunshot wounds, but investigators believe there were six gunshots, according to Barrett. She's currently in critical but stable condition and has been cooperating with investigators.

Court documents indicate Bolin has history with domestic violence. He’s been charged with domestic battery twice, once this year and once in 2014.

The incident at this home is the second time in recent weeks that investigators say domestic violence has led to a shooting in Brownsburg. Last month police say a man shot his girlfriend and killed another man outside a HomeGoods warehouse.
