EPD: Four people injured in shooting


EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – Evansville Police officers were called to the SideTrack Tavern on E. Illinois St. for a shooting early Sunday morning. Off-duty officers working security made the call to dispatch just before 2 a.m. Sunday.

Witnesses said they saw two people shooting at each other in the parking lot, but they were unable to reach the two suspects due to a large crowd in the parking lot.

The suspects fled the scene before the on-duty officers could arrive.

According to EPD, a total of four people sustained non-life threatening injuries. Two had wounds believed to be caused by fragmentation. The third victim had been shot in the abdominal area and the fourth in the right shoulder. Bullets reportedly hit the outside of the SideTrack Tavern building during the incident.

This is a second shooting to happen at the SideTrack Tavern since February of 2019.

Officers told our crew on scene that one person had been detained, but no one has been arrested yet.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Evansville Police Department at 812-436-7979.
