The Vincennes Police Department confirmed a shooting took place around 9 p.m. Thursday at Maple Park Apartments on Autumn Ridge Lane.

The shooting has left the community on edge.

“I heard a gunshot in my sister-in-law’s house, and me and my sister-in-law walked out of the house and there was a bunch of cops at the neighbor’s house on the same floor as her,” said former Maple Park resident, Krystl Morton.

The victim was taken to an Evansville hospital with what authorities believe are non life-threatening injuries. The suspect is still at large. No names have been released at this time.
