An Evansville teenager is shot Wednesday night in the same area where four teens were injured in a shooting earlier this week.

Evansville Police were called to Lincoln and Bedford around 10:10 Wednesday night on a shots fired call.

That’s where they found a 16 year old male with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

He was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.

The victim tells police he doesn’t know who shot him.

Earlier this week — 16 year old Jarnell Carter was arrested and charged with four counts of attempted murder for a Monday night shooting that involved four other teenagers.

This shooting was near Cherry and Bedford.

Those injured suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police say that incident was gang related.

It’s unknown if these two shootings are connected.

If you have any information on either shooting, call Evansville Police or the We Tip Hotline.
