One person is dead after an early Tuesday morning shooting on the south side of Evansville, Indiana.
Police responded to the 1200 block of Marshall Avenue near the intersection at Madison Avenue on Tuesday around 2:30 a.m. for a shots fired call with possible injuries.
Once they arrived, officers found a man who had been shot in the chest. He died at the scene.
The Vanderburgh County Coroner later identified the man who died as 29-year-old Douglas Todd Fulkerson of Evansville. Fulkerson's autopsy will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
In a 911 call obtained by 44News, a man could be heard claiming to have shot Fulkerson in self-defense. Investigators say they learned that an argument had occurred that led to the shooting.
EPD says the shooter was identified as 27-year-old Richard Garrett. He was arrested on unrelated drug charges but has not been charged for pulling the trigger at this time.
Also arrested on the same drug charges was 32-year-old Patrick Garrett. EPD says both Richard and Patrick were arrested on those charges after a search of their home revealed narcotics.
