The Johnson County prosecutor has determined no crime was committed when a man shot the former president of a Whiteland social club and accidentally shot a woman standing nearby.
Prosecutor Brad Cooper declined to file criminal charges against a Greenwood man who said he acted in self-defense when he shot an unarmed man in the parking lot of the Johnson County Eagles lodge during an incident July 8. A ricocheted round also struck the man’s girlfriend in the upper leg. Police said none of the gunshot wounds was life-threatening.
Cooper said he also considered filing a criminal charge against the former club president, who was shot, because of oral threats he made but ultimately decided not to.
