Home invasion suspect recovers from shooting; to appear in court today

The Osage County Attorney has reported that the suspect in a home invasion that was shot by a resident Oct. 8 at Overbrook, has been released from the hospital and booked into the Osage County Jail.

According to Osage County Attorney Brandon Jones, Bruce A. Jolly, 48, of Overbrook, will appear in Osage County District Court this afternoon on a felony charge and misdemeanor charge related to the Oct. 8 incident, and a felony charge and misdemeanor charge resulting from alleged crimes committed on Sept. 28.

One complaint filed by the county attorney alleges that Jolly committed felony aggravated burglary by entering the home of Ashley Mundy on Oct. 8 with the intent to commit a felony, theft or sexually motivated crime. Jolly is also charged with misdemeanor criminal damage to property for breaking a window at the Mundy residence.

A second complaint alleges that on Sept. 28 Jolly burglarized a vehicle belonging to Amber C. Olson and stole a purse valued at less than $1,000 belonging to Olson. The vehicle burglary charge is a felony; the theft charge is a misdemeanor.

Jolly was identified as a suspect in the home invasion after a resident of the Mundy home reported an intruder had forced entry into her home, and the subject was shot and fled from the residence. Following the emergency call from the resident, Osage County 911 received a call from Jolly, who had been shot and was at a neighbor’s house. At the time, Jolly was transported to Stormont Vail Hospital injured but in an unknown condition.

Law enforcement officials declined to release the name of the person who shot Jolly, although Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn later identified the resident as a female.
