The Bloomington Police Department is looking for 27-year-old Samantha Glenn, as a person of interest in the shooting of a 35-year-old man allegedly fleeing from her in the area of Fairview Street north of 12th Street, said Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo.

Pedigo said after firing the shots Glenn fled in a black 2013 Dodge Caravan with Indiana registration 610RAL, and should be considered armed and dangerous.

The shooting victim reported hearing footsteps quickly approaching behind him and as he turned around to see a female suspect raising a handgun before shooting at him as he ran northbound on Fairview. The man was hit in the hand, and his side, but the wounds are non-life-threatening.

Anybody with information about the shooting is asked to call: Detective Chris Scott at (812) 349-3382.

Bloomington Police Investigate Shooting

On May 21st, 2021 at approximately 10:56 a.m., officers responded to the 600 block of W 12th Street in reference to a woman calling 911 to report that another woman was trying to shoot her husband. While officers were responding to the scene, it was reported that the 35 year-old victim had indeed been shot in both his hand and his side. Upon the arrival of investigators, it was determined that the victim had been walking in the neighborhood when he reportedly heard footsteps quickly approaching behind him. The victim reported that he then turned around and saw a female suspect raise a handgun and the suspect began firing at him as he ran northbound on Fairview Street from the intersection of 12th Street. The victim was transported by ambulance to the IU Health Bloomington Hospital Emergency Department for treatment of his injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.

Information collected by investigators has identified a person of interest in the shooting as Samantha Glenn (27, Bloomington). The victim positively identified Glenn as the shooter and reported that both he and his wife have known her for several years. It is believed that Glenn fled the scene in a black 2013 Dodge Caravan bearing Indiana registration 610RAL. Anyone with information about Glenn’s whereabouts is asked to immediately call 911. Glenn should be considered armed and dangerous and members of the public should not approach her.
