EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Eyewitness News is getting reports of another standoff less than 24 hours from the first one. We have sent a crew to investigate.
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office originally sought to serve an eviction notice. Once deputies arrived, the woman was inside her apartment at Eastland apartments. A short time later, deputies tried to force their way in and that’s when an occupant tried to stab one of the deputies.
This led to a standoff between authorities and the occupants. Authorities are now seeking charges of attempted murder. Deputies have been trying to make contact since 9:00 a.m.
This is a developing story and we’ll keep you updated.
