(COLUMBUS) – A Bartholomew County corrections officer was arrested after he allegedly fired shots into a bedroom where two children were sleeping.
According to Indiana State Police 19-year-old Nicholas Wright, a jailer at the Bartholomew County Jail, fired a round of shots into a home on Alan Drive sometime during the overnight hours of Jan. 11.
The bullet ended up lodged into a toy. The children were not injured.
