Owensboro shooting victim identified; Search for suspect continues

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - A shooting happened in the 3100 block of Deer Trail just before 12 p.m. Tuesday.

According to police, DeAndre Mitchell, 23-year-old was shot in the stomach. They say Mitchell was conscious when he was taken to the hospital.

Police say the suspect ran from the scene. A police K-9 is searching the area.

Officers took one man, who witnessed the shooting, to the station to be questioned. But at this point investigators have not named a suspect.

And police say people in the area need to stay alert.

“I would recommend staying inside," suggests OPD’s Andrew Boggess." "If you see something suspicious, if you see somebody suspicious or you know something that may have been dropped or discarded obviously call us immediately. And hopefully we can work to identify who the suspect may be.”

Officers have not released Mitchell’s condition.

We are working to get more information.
