10/24/17 – 5:12 A.M.

A Fostoria man is recovering after he was apparently shot with an arrow Sunday night. The Fostoria Police Department reports the incident happened just after 7 p.m. at 855 Walnut Street. Officers found a man with an arrow through his lower extremities. A medical helicopter took the 24-year-old to a trauma center in Toledo for treatment.

A juvenile in a nearby yard was shooting a bow and arrow at a target at the time. Police believe the shooting was an accident, but they are continuing an investigation. Officers are looking to see if city laws allow target practice. They also want to make sure the juvenile was using a proper backstop.
