New details have surfaced on a shooting that took place at a McDonald's drive-thru on Monday night in Evansville.

The Evansville Police Department says that several witnesses at the scene of the shooting told them the shooting victim was in the drive-thru when he started arguing with someone in a different vehicle.

After an exchange of words between the occupants of the two vehicles, police say the suspect vehicle drove away and the man in the drive-thru continued to wait for his food. A short time later, that man was shot while still in his car.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
