Two shootings on Sunday that occurred just hours apart have again brought up the debate concerning the Evansville Police Department's request for funding the 'ShotSpotter' technology. While the technology would not have played a factor in the early morning officer-involved shooting, it would have aided in the shooting investigation eight hours later, police said.
The altercation lasted 14 frantic, harrowing seconds but the conversation centering around Sunday morning's officer-involved shooting continues. The veteran officer arrived in the middle of a shootout between two men who are now in police custody. The incident comes a day before the first Community Conversations forum, aimed at addressing and combating gun violence in Evansville, was to be held.
Just one day after a death was ruled a homicide in Daviess County, Indiana; a community is still in shock.
