Gunshots overnight in Evansville’s inner city leave one man dead and another on the run. It happened around 2:15 Saturday morning at the Marathon gas station on the corner of Kentucky and Walnut.

When officers arrived, they found Decedric Williams, 25, in a nearby alley with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the hospital but did not survive his injures. Police are looking for Demeko Bradley, 28, wanted for murder. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Witnesses tell police the incident started as a dispute between the victim and another man before turning to gunfire.

Tonight, neighbors say the violence is becoming an unfortunate norm, and they’re not surprised to hear about another shooting happening at a corner that’s become notorious for criminal activity.

“Honestly it doesn’t surprise me anymore,” says James Propst, who lives around the corner, “There’s too many shooting around here. I’ve heard several,” he says.

Another neighbor, Jackie Watkins-Pullom, says it’s the kids who need to change, “Their attitudes need to change. The gang violence needs to change, period.”

When the sun goes down and the lights come on, neighbors say the corner where this shooting happend transforms. “A hot spot,” says Watkins-Pullom, “It’s sad.” Propst agrees, “It has a lot of violence and the violence around Evansville has picked up and I think it has to do with gangs.

“I’ve been up here for 20 years and it’s not at all like it used to be,” adds Propst, “Nowadays you waive at them, you get the middle finger and you don’t know if somebody’s carrying a gun or gonna shoot you just by the way you look.”

Another neighbor, Karen McBeath says there is a major problem in the city, “We’re losing a lot of our black males to either prison or the streets. We just need to come together and pray and try to figure out what’s going on with our men.”
