Investigation continues into weekend shooting at party


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – No arrests have been made so far in connection with a weekend shooting in western Vanderburgh County.

It happened just after midnight Sunday morning in the 100 block of Roesner just off University Parkway.

911 callers said several people arrived at the party who were not invited.

Those people were asked to leave the house, but when they did, witnesses said they fired several shots through the front window – hitting one person.

The woman shot during the incident was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

At this time, there is no information on possible suspects.

The University of Southern Indiana released this statement on Monday:

“Over the weekend sheriff’s deputies were called to a house north of the USI campus for a report of shots fired. They learned a female had been shot with non-life threatening injuries. At this time, the victim’s name has not been released by authorities and the investigation is ongoing.

USI can confirm that the home is not a property owned by the University. However, we understand some of our students may have been present in the home. The dean of students is working to identify those students and offer support services. Any student who may need assistance should contact the Dean of Student’s Office.

The safety of our students is of paramount importance. Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to contact the Vanderburgh County Sherriff’s Office.”
