The Rittman Police Department has released the identities of the two men involved in an apparent murder/suicide last week. Officers were dispatched to South Main Street last Tuesday for a shooting outside of an apartment. Upon arriving, they found 71-year-old Timothy Bowes shot in the backyard and 76-year-old James Sawyers, the suspected shooter, inside his apartment. Police eventually forced their way into Sawyers’ apartment, where they found him suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Bowes was pronounced dead at the scene, while Sawyers passed away in the ambulance. The incident remains under investigation.
