One person was arrested Tuesday after police say a home on Adams Avenue in Evansville, Indiana, was struck by gunfire multiple times.

Officers with the Evansville Police Department responded to a shots-fired call in the 800 block of Adams Avenue on Tuesday night around 8:30 p.m.

According to EPD, a victim on-scene told responding officers that he and the other victim, a juvenile, were walking on the sidewalk when a red car pulled up next to them.

Police said that after a brief conversation was had between the victims and the occupants of the vehicle, both victims started to walk away when they heard gunfire coming from the vehicle. Although neither victim was struck by gunfire, bullet holes were found in a house in the 800 block of Adams.

EPD says the victims were familiar with the people inside of the car, which allowed police to quickly locate them.

With help from E.P.D.'s SWAT Team and Drone Unit, the suspect, 19-year-old Shaundae Alexander Winters of Evansville, was found in an apartment nearby.

  • Winters was arrested and charged with: 
  • Criminal Recklessness with a Deadly Weapon (Level 5 Felony)
  • Intimidation (Level 6 Felony)
  • 2 Counts of Criminal Mischief (A Misdemeanor)
  • Winters is currently incarcerated at the Vanderburgh County Corrections Center.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
