Evansville Police Shoot and Kill Man with Gun


EPD: Man fired shots in an alley on Lewis Avenue, near Lincoln

A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Evansville. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

Police were called to the 500 block of Lewis Avenue, near the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Highway 41, at about 5:15 Tuesday afternoon.

The EPD says officers encountered a man who pointed a gun at them.

Police say the man then entered an alley and fired shots.

Officers returned fire and shot the man.

AMR medics treated him at the scene, where he died.

There’s no word yet on the man’s identity.

No officers were hit.

The so-called “hostile environment” prompted authorities to temporarily close the northbound lanes of Highway 41 between Lincoln and Walnut.
