Authorities searching for Evansville man wanted on attempted murder charges

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office has an arrest warrant out for an Evansville man on attempted murder charges.

The Sheriff's Office was dispatched to Show-Me's on Evansville's west side at 2:51 a.m. on Saturday in reference to a hit and run accident.

Deputies say they found 21-year-old Alexander J. Marshall and 20-year-old Daniel W. Jordan laying in the east bound lane of Pearl Drive.

According to witnesses, 24-year-old Jacob L. Higgins and two other subjects arrived at Show-Me's in a white Camaro with T-tops to meet some friends.

Shortly after Higgins arrived, a dark colored mini-van arrived with several subjects, including Marshall and Jordan.

Witnesses stated Higgins got into a verbal argument with Marshall, Jordan, and their companions. The verbal argument led into a physical fight.

Witnesses say the fight continued to the AMC Theatre across the street and the subjects from the mini-van started throwing large rocks into the windshield of Higgins' vehicle.

According to witnesses, an unidentified white male wearing a yellow shirt pulled out a handgun and pointed it at Higgins.

That's when Higgins took off in his Camaro and struck Jordan and Marshall.

Officials say Marshall was dragged under Higgins's vehicle for over a quarter of a mile.

Marshall and Jordan were taken to Deaconess Hospital. Marshall suffered multiple serious injuries. Jordan was treated and released with minor injuries.

Sheriff's detective obtained an arrest warrant charging Higgins with Attempted Murder, which is a Class A Felony.

He also faces charges of Criminal Recklessness (Class D Felony) and Hit and Run (Class D Felony.)

Officials say if you have any information concerning this incident, you should contact Detective Randy Chapman at (812)-421-6342.

If you have any information on Higgins's whereabouts, call (812)-421-6201 or 911.
