Police need help with information regarding Evansville shooting

Posted: Updated:

There are new developments in the shooting that critically wounded a pregnant woman. Evansville police say they need your help. 

Both shooting victims, Angie Mueller, who is 16 weeks pregnant, and her uncle, Mark Baughn, are still in the hospital. Monday nigh, Angie's brother told 14 News that her unborn baby did not survive, but now police say the unborn child is alive and is expected to survive. 

14 News spoke to Angie's mother, Shannon, Tuesday afternoon and she says Angie is still in the ICU and the baby's future is still uncertain. Shannon says Angie needs another surgery and if they go through with it, there is only a 15% chance the baby will survive.

If the baby does not survive, the prosecutor's office says the suspects could be charged with murder or termination of human pregnancy, which is an enhancement and carries a penalty of between six and 20 years.

Evansville police initially received some information from Angie about the suspects, but now Angie says she never saw the actual shooters. That means police now have no suspects.

"I think people should be concerned that there are people in our community that are willing to act that way regardless if we catch up with these specific suspects or not. We know that there's somebody else that's going to take that place. There's somebody else out there that's capable and willing to carry out that kind of action," said Sgt. Jason Cullum with EPD.

The suspects fired several shots, never actually entering the house. Evansville police say the gang task force is handling the case because they know many of the major players in local gangs, but they still need your help. 

If you have any information, you can report it anonymously by calling 1-800-78-CRIME.
