Police say Ronnie Fenwick, 29, was arguing with his ex-girlfriend around noon Monday at a home on Keller St. During the argument, police say Fenwick, who was on parole for a robbery conviction, fired his gun at his ex-girlfriend but missed. Police say the bullet also narrowly missed an Animal Control officer who was in the area handling an unrelated call.
The Animal Control officer then notified Central Dispatch and Evansville Police mobilized their SWAT units. This also prompted Cedar Hall to go into 'secure mode.'
Before authorities arrived, police say Fenwick got into a car with his mom and then left the scene. Fenwick's mother was located at another house but Fenwick was no longer with her, police say.
Two hours after the shooting, police found Fenwick at a house in the 400 block of Covert Ave. Glenwood Leadership Academy then went into 'secure mode' as well.
Members of EPD's SWAT team were able to surround the house while negotiators talked with Fenwick. A short time later, Fenwick was arrested without incident. He faces a number of charges including attempted murder and criminal confinement.
No one was hurt in either ordeal.
