Indiana State Police making an arrest in connection to a shooting in Shoals. 

ISP says the Martin County Sheriff's Office responded to a call of shots fire at a home in the 800 Block of Main Street Sunday afternoon. 

When officers arrived, they found a man, identified as 39-year-old Jeremi Jones, with a gunshot wound. 

Jones was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Indiana State Police have been asked to lead this investigation.

Once on scene, Troopers and local authorities found enough probably cause to arrest 23-year-old Kesten Jones.

He was taken to the Martin County Jail and faces a charge of murder.

ISP says there is no threat to the public and the investigation remains ongoing.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
