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.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
