EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville police are working an active homicide investigation.

Officials with the Evansville Police Department say officers were called to the 600 block of Jefferson Avenue around 2:45 Tuesday morning.

They say the caller reported hearing five to six shots and a person laying in the alleyway.

When officers arrived, they say they found a victim in the alley with multiple gunshot wounds.

Officers say the victim was not breathing.

The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 19-year-old Tel’Majae Caimron McGee.

Officials say the investigation is still ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time.

EPD Public Information Officer Anna Gray said they’re hoping somebody, or multiple people will come forward with information that could help them solve the case.

“At 2:45 a.m. I’m sure there weren’t a lot of people out, other than the shots waking people up,” Gray said. “Only the people probably involved in the situation knows what happened, but we’re really hoping that people are going to be talking and calling in with information.”
