A shooting that took place in Owensboro on Monday sent one man to the hospital. 44News spoke with nearby residents of the shooting to get a better view of exactly what happened.

Around 5:30 p.m. shots were fired at the intersection of Elm Stree & 8th Street, and now officers at the Owensboro Police Department are investigating to find out who was the person that pulled the trigger.

When officers arrived to the scene, they found one man on the ground who had been shot, and before officers arrive, neighbors say they saw people running from the scene.

“A couple of kids came running down the alley like they knew who did it, howling at the top of their lungs," said Ryan Devine.

The man who was shot was quickly transported to the Owensboro Regional Hospital and is now there with non-life threatening injuries, but residents in this West Owensboro neighborhood weren't surprised to see another shooting happening near them.

“No, because another happened about five or six days before, a block from the shelter down on plum, near fifth street," said Devine.

This is an ongoing investigation, and officers said they haven’t yet been able to find anyone who was an eye witness to the crime, so if you or anyone you know has any information on this crime, you’re asked to contact OPD.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
