A Bowling Green man was arrested Wednesday after a shooting that resulted hours later in the death of a man.
Pedro Antonio Alfaro, 25, is charged with murder in the shooting that killed Kevin J. Morris, 20, of Bowling Green.
A Bowling Green Police Department arrest citation said officers were called at 11:55 p.m. Tuesday to Campus Pointe Apartments, 851 Fields Drive, to investigate a shooting in the parking lot.
Witnesses named Alfaro as a suspect in the shooting, and officers located him in the 2100 block of Nashville Road and made a traffic stop.
“Upon contact with Alfaro, he stated that he was acting in self-defense,” BGPD Officer Matthew Irvin said in the citation. “He further explained that he was involved in an altercation and that he shot someone.”
Alfaro told police the firearm used in the shooting was inside his vehicle, and he requested an attorney and declined to make additional statements, his citation said.
Police recovered two firearms from the vehicle, one of which matched the caliber of weapon used in the shooting, police records said.
Investigators determined Morris was shot in the torso and chest region at close range. He was taken to The Medical Center, where he died early Wednesday.
No bond has been set for Alfaro, who is in Warren County Regional Jail.
