Sheriff Shane Doyle has helped with some local safety meetings. "While our agency has nothing to do with this Bowling Green case, it's no surprise that something like this has happened. According to the reports, this was an act directed at one person only, a church can be an easy target to harm many people at once. Even churches aren't a guaranteed place of safety anymore. We advise everyone to have a safety plan in place and to be aware of what's going on around you."
