On Sunday (5/15) at 3:27 p.m. Newark Police responded to a 911 call from a woman asking for help, and that a male had been shot at 304 West Maple Avenue in the Village of Newark.
Responding Officers were met at the door by the victim’s wife, 53 year old Patricia Lootens, who led Officers to her husband who was suffering from what appeared to be one gunshot wound to the lower torso.
Ambulance arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and stabilized the victim, 57 year old Ronald Lootens. The victim was then transported to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.
The investigation revealed that following a domestic dispute, Patricia Lootens shot her husband just above his penis. The .38 bullet went through his prostate and pelvic bone and exited his buttocks.
Patricia Lootens was charged with Assault in the 1st Degree. She was arraigned and remanded to jail on $5000 cash/$10,000 bond and bailed herself out the same night.
Patricia Lootens waived her preliminary hearing and the case will be presented to a Wayne County Grand Jury, where more charges may be pending.
