A suspect in a shooting is now in custody after a three hour stand-off with Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies.

The suspect is 41-year-old Cassidy Fenwick, of Henderson.

According to Major Jason Ashworth with the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office, the victim contacted central dispatch that he had been shot in the foot by Fenwick.

The person who was shot has non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies were outside of a home on the 1400 block Halsey Ave. on the West Side near Upper Mt. Vernon Road Saturday afternoon, trying to make contact with Fenwick for three hours.

Fenwick had been hiding in the attic where the shooting occurred.

Four children were evacuated from the house.

After three hours, Fenwick came out and peacefully surrendered.

Fenwick refused to speak with investigators, who obtained a search warrant. A loaded handgun was found after deputies searched the house.

Fenwick has been charged with Battery w/Deadly Weapon as a Level 5 Felony, Intimidation w/Deadly Weapon as a Level 5 Felony, Pointing a Loaded Firearm as a Level 6 Felony, Criminal Recklessness w/Deadly Weapon as a Level 6 Felony, and a Misdemeanor FTA warrant.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
