A man is dead after being shot in the abdomen Friday night.

Evansville Police were called to Brentwood Circle inside the Fielding Court Apartment Complex for a shots fired call around 7:55 p.m.

The victim was taken to an area hospital where they later died.

EPD says while attempting to provide medical care to the victim, a witness began interfering with officers and was detained.

We're told the witness was taken to EPD headquarters for an interview and was later arrested on outstanding warrants unrelated to the incident.

EPD says a search warrant was applied for and granted for the apartment the victim was located in. During the course of the investigation, authorities say it became apparent the shooting was self-inflicted.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
