Police say a suspect is dead after an officer-involved shooting.

Evansville Police say they were called to the backyard of a private home in the 11-Hundred Block of Cherry Street shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday.

The caller told police the suspect pointed the weapon at both them and their dog.

Police say when they arrived, the suspect did not comply with officers and at least one EPD officer did fire a shot.

"The subject is to appear deceased at the scene at this time," says Officer Phillip Smith. "We don't have any further identifying information on the suspect at this time. So that's where we are on this investigation at this point. So we're processing the scene, talking to any witnesses that we can at this point. Multiple witnesses have told us that the officers did indeed give commands to the suspect and he didn't comply."

Vanderburgh County Coroner Steve Lockyear has identified the man who died as 33-year-old Rodriguez Daundre Pam of Evansville, Indiana. His autopsy is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on Monday.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
