Gunfire incidents send two to the hospital, leaves home damaged




Evansville Police are investigating two incidents that left two people shot and one home damaged by gunfire. Both happened around 2:00am and within minutes of each other.
The first incident happened at 116 W. Oregon. In that incident, two people were shot. Angie Mueller (25) was shot in the abdomen and Mark Baughn (52) was shot in the leg. Both were treated at a local hospital and both are expected to survive. Mueller was able to give investigators information on the possible suspects.
A second 911 call for shots fired was made just after the Oregon call. That call was made in the 400 block of S. Morton. A house was struck by at least two bullets, but nobody was injured. Based on initial information, investigators believe the Morton Ave shooting may have been retaliation for the Oregon shooting. Investigators believe the incidents are gang related.
At least one handgun has been recovered during the investigation. There have not been any arrests in connection with the shootings. The investigation is still on-going.
Anyone with information about these events is asked to call EPD at 436-7979 or the WeTip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.
