The Evansville Police Department is investigating a shooting incident that happened early Tuesday morning in the area of Mary Street and Oregon Street in Evansville, Indiana.

Officers were called to an area hospital around 1:00 a.m. on Tuesday for a male who had been shot in the shoulder.

When they arrived at the hospital, officers spoke with the shooting victim and a witness. They told the officers that they had been walking in the area of Mary and Oregon Streets, but were unsure about their exact location at the time of the shooting.

The pair told officers that while they were walking, a black passenger car pulled up and an individual inside it began shooting. Police say the victim was struck by one round in the shoulder. The victim’s wounds were non-life-threatening.

According to EPD, neither the victim nor the witness knew who shot at them or who owned the vehicle.

The victim didn't wish to assist in the investigation any further and declined to pursue charges against the suspect.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
