Local

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – A woman has undergone surgery after being shot multiple times in Vanderburgh County early Monday.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office reports Katie Clark, 29, was found along Diamond Avenue around 4:00 a.m. with multiple gunshot wounds. An EPD Sergeant is credited with spotting Clark lying near the side of the road between Kratzville Road and St. Joseph Avenue.

“We recovered multiple shell casings on the roadway where it appeared she was shot in that location as opposed to being shot somewhere else and then brought to that location and dumped there. It looks like she was shot there in that place,” major Jason Ashworth said.

Police said Clark gave some information to them before she was taken to the hospital.

“She’s still alive, being watched carefully. We’re watching her and guarding her where she is,” major Jason Ashworth said.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office has interviewed a person of interest in this investigation.
