Man who shot after custody exchange says it was self-defense

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – A man who shot his sister’s ex-boyfriend after a custody exchange at the Bowling Green police station says he did it in self-defense.

WBKO-TV reports ( Timothy Woodard’s attorney told the station that after the custody exchange on Sunday evening, the two cars pulled out of the parking lot. Then Kenneth Marshall, of Clarksville, Tennessee, jumped out of his car and started charging the car with Woodard and his sister. That’s when Woodard fired.

Woodard, of Bowling Green, is being held at the Warren County Jail on a $10,000 bond. He currently is charged with assault.

Marshall told police a different story. He said he exchanged no words with Woodard and the shooting was unprovoked.

Marshall was listed in stable condition at The Medical Center.

The investigation is ongoing.
