"I was just sitting at the drive-thu window at Walgreen's, and I heard three or four gunshots go off," said bystander Jeff Milam.

What began as a normal trip to the pharmacy, became startling for one man Tuesday afternoon in Bowling Green.

"I was just sitting at the drive-thru window at Walgreen's, and I heard three or four gunshots go off," said bystander Jeff Milam.

He was just yards away from what Kentucky State Police say was an officer-involved shooting in the parking lot of Michelle's Consignment on the 31-W bypass.

Thomas Brown, a Warren County Security Officer, allegedly shot Brandon Bradshaw, 27, of Bowling Green.

KSP says Brown was off duty when he shot Bradshaw.

"Mr. Brown has been placed on administrative leave, per the Warren County Sheriff's Department's policy," said Trooper Jonathan Biven.

Bradshaw is a former Warren County Constable, and current SkyPAC Youth Theater Educator.

SkyPAC released this statement, "We at SkyPAC are shocked and deeply saddened by this tragic event. Brandon is a fixture in Bowling Green's youth theater community, and has quickly helped shape SkyPAC as our youth theater educator. We have been contacted by GRECC, who has offered grief counseling services, through the regional school districts, to the numerous young people who have been touched and inspired by Brandon," says SkyPAC Executive Director Tom Tomlinson.

KSP says Bradshaw was transported by ambulance to The Medical Center in critical condition, and was later transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville. Brown was not injured.

There were two pickup trucks at the scene. One truck's passenger side window was shattered. Kentucky State Police are not releasing details regarding the cause of the shooting.
