On Tuesday around 6:30 p.m., the Evansville Police Department responded to a shots-fired call in the 2800 block of S. Ruston Avenue where a caller said one of her sons had shot her other son.

The caller told police her adult son had shot her juvenile son, but that it was an accident.

When officers arrived, they found the juvenile had been shot in the back in between his shoulder blades. He was alert and able to talk to police and was quickly transported to an area hospital where he's expected to survive his injuries.

Police say the older brother was taken to the police department where he was interviewed, and the shooting was determined to be accidental.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
