Officers from the Ripley County Sheriffs Office responded
to a domestic dispute in Osgood involving Clifford H. Doc
Winters, 44, of Osgood, and a female, Sunday morning, August 30.
When officers arrived Winters was no longer at the residence. There
was no charging information available at press time, according to
the officer, Rob Bradley, who initially responded to the call.
At 11:45 a.m. police received another call from a different Osgood
residence on Leslie Street, where they found Winters with a self-inflicted
gunshot wound, according to a State Police spokesperson.
Winters was transported by PHI to the University of Cincinnati Hospital,
where he underwent surgery for his wound.
Contrary to rumors, Winters was not shot by police, nor was there
a stand-off situation involved.
No further information was available at press time and the incident
is currently under investigation by the Ripley County Sheriffs
Office and the Indiana State Police, Versailles Post.
