Bowling Green police have arrested a suspect in the death of a man found early Monday outside a Domino's Pizza store on Stonehenge Avenue.
According to police, a call was received to respond to a robbery at 2201 Stonehenge Ave. just after midnight. When police arrived, they saw a man with a gunshot wound on the pavement to the side of the business. He died at the scene, according to Ronnie Ward, spokesman for the Bowling Green Police Department.
Police said the victim, 51-year-old Harold Dean Johnson, of Bowling Green, was employed by Domino's Pizza at a different location.
Johnson had come to the Stonehenge store to surprise his girlfriend who works there and help her and the other employees prep for closing when another man entered the business and demanded money.
There were others inside the building at the time, but no one else was injured. Police weren't sure whether any money was taken.
After a brief foot pursuit, officers arrested 20-year-old John Paul Shobe.
Shobe was originally charged with giving officers and false name and fleeing and evading on foot. When detectives searched Shobe's apartment with a warrant, they found evidence that led then to charge Shobe with homicide in Johnson's death.
