EPD: 2 people in custody after 1 person shot early Sat.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A person was shot at a home in Evansville and authorities say they are no stranger to this location.

Around 9 a.m. Saturday, Evansville Police were called to the 700 Block of West of Judson Street. Police say the caller reported hearing more than 15 gunshots.

“I was just about to have morning coffee and got a text from the kids - ‘they’re shooting again and the bullet hit the house.’ So mom’s on the way," said Judson Street resident, Vi Johnson.

Neighbors tell 14 News that this is nothing new.

“What goes on unfortunately at the house across the street is fairly frequent, especially in the last three years or so," said Johnson.

One officer says EPD has been called to the home on Judson Street three times this week.

“There have been multiple shots fired runs at this residence over the last thirty days," said EPD Sergeant Greg Motz.

Police say when they arrived at the residence they found one person shot.

“One of the individuals involved received a gunshot wound in the lower leg and was taken to the hospital," said Sergeant Motz. “We have two subjects in custody right now, and we’re working on the details.”

Officers say they are working to speak with neighbors to find out more about a possible motive.

Vi Johnson, who’s lived in her house for six years, says she worries about the safety of her family.

“My cynicism says, ‘here we go again.’ My hope is that this is the last time I’m gonna have to worry about my kids’ safety," said Johnson.

Police say that the person who was shot this morning was taken to the hospital. They say that person isn’t suffering any life-threatening injuries.
