A shooting investigation is underway in Evansville after a man showed up at the emergency room with multiple gunshot wounds to his right leg on Sunday.
The investigation began Sunday when officers were dispatched to the Ascension St. Vincent ER on Washington Avenue in reference to a gunshot victim.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with the man, who said he was walking south on Linwood Avenue from the area of Jackson Avenue/Taylor Avenue when someone in a newer model Nissan passenger car pulled up next to him and shot at him.
The man told police he believed he saw a pink gun come out of the rear passenger-side window and start shooting at him.
When asked who dropped him off at the hospital, the victim said he thought it might have been his mother but couldn't say what type of vehicle he was dropped off in.
According to EPD, officers sent to the area of the shooting were unable to find evidence that a shooting had taken place there, and no one in the area heard any gunshots at the time of the alleged shooting.
EPD says the victim could not provide any suspect descriptions or more information. Detective and crime scene were called to the scene and a report was taken.
Anyone with information on the incident should contact EPD's Detective Office at 812-436-7979.
