An Evansville man is behind bars on several charges. 

Evansville Police say they were called to the 1000 block of Allens Lane Saturday night around 11:30 p.m. in reference to a burglary in progress. While headed to the scene, officers were advised shots had been fired. 

When police arrived, they say there were visible bullet holes to the residence and neighbor's house.

Police say the resident, 37-year-old Joshua Hudson was found to have fired his girlfriend's gun all throughout the home, aiming randomly and unloading an entire magazine. 

EPD says Hudson believed that someone was attempting to break into his residence, but proof of that could not be found. 

Authorities say Hudson's girlfriend and their two children were in the home at the time of the shooting. 

EPD says due to finding narcotics, the reckless behavior of the father and the living conditions, the children were taken from the home and released to a family member.

Hudson was booked in the Vanderburgh County Jail and charged with posession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, criminal recklessness, and posession of a firearm by a violent felon.
