EPD: Pregnant woman taken to hospital after Evansville shooting

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville police responded to three separate shots fired calls overnight.

Officers tell us a pregnant woman was taken to the hospital after being shot in the leg. That happened just before midnight Wednesday at Bradford Pointe Apartments.

Authorities tell us they also found damage to the building. They say they found six different apartments had been struck by bullets. They also found several shell casings in the parking lot of the apartment complex.

Police officials tell us the woman’s injuries were non-life threatening, and her unborn child is doing fine at this time.

No one else was hurt and no arrests have been made in that case. Authorities are asking anyone who might have information to call the Evansville Police Department.

Just hours before that run, police were called to another report of shots fired at Bradford Pointe Apartments. We spoke with neighbors on scene who told us they heard several shots.

One tells us a bullet went through their apartment, right over their wife’s head before entering another apartment.

Police say they did find damage at the building.

Both of the neighbors who say their apartments were hit tell us this kind of activity isn’t unusual for the area.

Now they’re saying they want to move out.

“I yelled to my kids and said everybody down, and I immediately called 911," a neighbor who wants to stay anonymous said. “It’s becoming the normal around here and it’s becoming increasingly terrifying. We left after that. We went to a hotel room after that and stayed. That’s how scared I was."

“The one down here at the bottom - it went through hers," another neighbor who wants to stay anonymous said. “Ours was grazed and was real close. So my husband grabbed me to the ground and grabbed my daughter cause she was laying like stuck to the bed shaking. The gunshots were different this time. It was like rounds, a whole bunch of them. My husband is like a mocho man and he was even kind of shook up and nervous about it. His anxiety was through the roof. It’s time to go, it’s not safe."

“This is probably it for us," Jeremy Courter, a neighbor who claims his apartment was also hit said. "My wife has lived here for about 23 years. She’s ready to move now.”

We’re told no one was hurt and no arrests have been made at this time. Police couldn’t confirm if the two shootings were connected.

Evansville police also responded to shots being fired on Adams Avenue. That happened Wednesday night around 10:50.

We’re told officers were already in the area when they heard the shots go off. That’s when police say they saw a car leaving the area the wrong way.

We’re told they stopped the car and took four people in for questioning.

Once they did arrive on scene, they found a house had been hit. Authorities also said some cars on the street had bullet holes.

Police say no one was hurt and so far no arrests have been made.
