A busy weekend happening in Evansville as there were three different reports of gunshots fired off within an 8 hour window.

The first near the Arrowhead Motel where a man accidentally shot him set in the foot. The second taking place near Ravenwood Drive where a man shot toward a group of teens who were trespassing on vacant property, and the third happening near Cherry and Riverside where a large group of men got into an altercations after attending Xcesss Gentleman’s Club.

These three weekend shootings adding to an astounding tally of shots fired calls we’ve seen here in the River City.

“Since June first until August, there were a little over 200 shots fired runs that have been dispatched, and that’s just in the city," said Sergeant Anna Gray of the Evansville Police Department.

The third shooting happening around 3:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, and it sent two people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
