Bowling Green police spokesman Ronnie Ward tells WKU Public Radio the victim was shot but police are not saying that was necessarily the cause of death. An autopsy will be performed on the body in Louisville.
Bowling Green police responded to a call about a robbery at the Hands Club on Beech Street just after 1:00 am Thursday. When they arrived they noticed a trail of blood leading out of the building. They followed the trail and that led them to the body of an unidentified male victim nearly a block away near another building.
They say he had apparently been shot. Their investigation is continuing.
