EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The name of the suspect arrested after a shooting outside a restaurant on the southeast side has been released.

Police tell 14NEWS it happened just after 5 p.m. Wednesday night outside the Hardee's on Covert Avenue.

Officers say two groups of people started arguing outside the Hardee's when 23-year-old Tryan Howard, of Evansville, pulled a gun and opened fire.

A woman, not involved in the confrontation, was hit. We're told a bullet grazed her hand.

Howard took off running to a set of apartments down the street. Officers set up a perimeter and spotted him darting between apartment complex buildings.

Officers took off running after Howard, but a K-9 officer caught him a couple seconds later.

Police say officers also recovered a gun he was carrying during the chase.

Howard is currently being held in the Vanderburgh Co. Jail without bond. He is facing several charges including battery with a deadly weapon, criminal recklessness and resisting law enforcement.
