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.
