Evansville man killed in early morning shooting. Police asking for information on the suspect


At 3:00am on Saturday February 13th, EPD officers on routine patrol heard several gunshots coming from the area of the Lucky Lady bar at 523 N. Main. The officers responded to the scene and found a shooting victim near the front door.
A witness told officers that the victim had been shot by a black male who had just fled the scene in a vehicle. Officers were able to view the shooting on video captured by the bar’s surveillance cameras.
In the video, the suspect is seen approaching the victim and shooting him. A licensed gun owner who witnessed the shooting fired multiple rounds at the suspect. The suspect then ran back to a blue Chevy SUV and fled the scene. It is unknown if the suspect was injured during the shooting. Because his actions were lawful, the witness who fired rounds at the suspect is not facing charges.
The suspect was described as a light skinned black male in his 30’s or 40’s. He was believed to be around 6 foot tall and 220-240lbs. He was wearing an orange hoodie under a black coat. He left in a blue late model Chevy Tahoe. The SUV is possible a 2009-2014 model.
The victim was identified by the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office as 38 year old Maurice Hayward. Hayward died at a local hospital about one hour after the shooting.
Images of the suspect and the SUV are being released to help police identify the suspect. The actual video of the shooting is not being released.
The suspect is armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call 911 immediately. Tips can also be called into WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME or to EPD at 812-436-7979.
