Police: Woman shot husband in chestPOSTED AT 12:00 AM ON Aug. 24, 2007
A Bloomington man was shot and murdered Thursday night after a reported domestic dispute.
John Hood, 63, owner of Putter’s Park and Johnny Joe’s Pub in Ellettsville, was shot once in the chest, said Monroe County Det. Brad Swain.
Police believe his wife, Juanita, 52, shot him.
At about 11:30 p.m. the Monroe County Sheriff’s department received a 911 call from Hood’s daughter, saying Juanita Hood had told her she shot John Hood, Monroe County Det. Brad Swain said.
Monroe County dispatched state troopers to their house where emergency personnel determined John Hood to be dead at the scene, Swain said. After interviewing Juanita Hood, officers arrested her. She now faces preliminary charges of murder.
Swain said the sheriff’s department will be pursuing other issues to try and get a clearer picture of what happened.
Juanita Hood was transported to the Monroe County Jail and is being held without bond.
