Police looking for Zesto shooter

Evansville Police are looking for a suspect in a shooting near a popular ice cream stand.

A release from the police department says 20-year-old Donovan Thomas was shot in the leg outside Zesto’s on East Riverside Drive at about 4:25 Thursday afternoon.

The release says officers applied a tourniquet and were able to get information from Thomas.

He told police 21-year-old Michael Merriweather shot him and left the scene, but Thomas didn’t provide a possible motive for the shooting.
