Brownsburg man suspected of shooting wife taken into custody

A Brownsburg man is now in custody for allegedly shooting his wife while his children were at home Wednesday morning.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (WTHR) - A Brownsburg man is now in custody for allegedly shooting his wife while his children were at home Wednesday morning.

Kenneth Bolin was taken into custody Thursday, one day after he allegedly shot his wife, Tiffany. The shooting happened on Alpha Drive, a few blocks southwest of the intersection of State Roads 136 and 267 around 5 a.m.


Bolin was taken into custody on the southeast side of Indianapolis shortly before 4 p.m. Police say he will be charged with attempted murder.

Two children, believed to be ages 13 and 6, were in the home at the time of the shooting. Police believe the older child, a boy, called 911 to report the shooting.

The victim was taken to Methodist Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. She reportedly talked to officers and paramedics at the scene before being transported to hospital.

"There was some internal bleeding after the first surgery. She has not went back into surgery and we are hearing she is back in critical but stable condition," Brownsburg Police Cmdr. Jennifer Barrett said.

Thursday afternoon, police transported Bolin, the father of the two children, to the Brownsburg Police Department.

Investigators believe an argument between the couple escalated to violence. Bolin allegedly shot his wife Tiffany multiple times inside their Alpha Avenue home.

Next door, Steve Shelton's wife heard the commotion.

"She heard the gunshots. It woke her up. But she really didn't know what they were. Then she heard him get on his motorcycle and leave," Shelton said.

As investigators collected evidence from inside the house, Eyewitness News learned about the couple's rocky, violent relationship witnessed by neighbors. A woman who lives across the street shared that she has seen police at the house several times, including a situation that resulted in a police SWAT call after a heated argument between the couple.

Neighbor Steve Shelton said, “There have been some things going on there for a while, so it's not like it's brand new. I just didn't think he would go as far as shoot her," Steve Shelton said.

The shooting in front of the children bothers police officers, who respond to domestic violence situations more often these days. Officers advise domestic violence victims everywhere to get help, especially if minors are involved in the situation.

"Keep in mind if there are children involved, they are the silent victims as well," Barrett said.

For their own safety, police disconnected Bolin's security cameras mounted around the house. They had concerns Kenneth Bolin could remotely watch their every move.
