Authorities mum on apparent shooting near Cridersville on Monday

CRIDERSVILLE — Authorities from the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office are releasing only minimal information surrounding an apparent shooting incident that reportedly took place late Monday afternoon or early evening.

Detective Lt. Doug Burke on Tuesday would only confirm that officers from the sheriff’s office were dispatched “to the Cridersville area” in response to a shooting incident in which the “subject injured himself.” Burke would not comment on the nature of the injuries nor would he say if the injuries were accidental or intentional.

“The incident is still under investigation,” Burke said. “This is still pretty fresh, and we’re not going to release any more information until we’ve got some concrete information.”
