Local

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Evansville police say two shootings were reported in the city on Saturday night.

Officers say one person was accidentally shot at the Arrowhead Motel on Fares Avenue. Police say a man and his girlfriend were walking down the road. We’re told the man was playing with a gun in his pocket when he accidentally shot himself in the foot. Police say the man was taken to the hospital but will be taken to jail after because he’s a violent felon. We’re told his girlfriend was also arrested because she had an escape warrant from Dubois County.

EPD said another shooting scene unfolded in the area of Bayard Park Drive and Rotherwood Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Police say another shots fired call reported on South Englewood Ave. is connected to that shooting.

Police said no suspect or victims were located, but detectives collected several shell casings at the scene.
