A 36 year old Evansville man, Terry Adams, is being held without bond in the Posey County Jail following an overnight shooting in Mt. Vernon, Indiana.
Posey County Dispatch received several 911 calls, early Wednesday morning around 1:00 am, of shots fired in the area of 3rd and Park Streets in Mt. Vernon. Indiana State Police Officers did not locate any activity in the area, but later received a 911 call regarding a man being shot and needing an ambulance. The victim, 32 year old Marcus McGrew of Mt. Vernon, originally drove to his residence on Pearl Street where he picked up his wife and drove to his father’s residence on Nation Road where an ambulance was summoned. McGrew was transported to Deaconess Midtown Hospital where he was treated for a gunshot wound and released.
Adams and McGrew had been involved in a confrontation at the Sunoco gas station on 4th Street in Mt. Vernon. The altercation eventually led to Adams and McGrew leaving the gas station in separate vehicles and stopping in the area of 3rd and Park Streets where Adams allegedly shot McGrew with a 40 caliber pistol. Adams was located near West Elementary School and arrested for Attempted Murder, a Class 1 Felony. The investigation continues.
Indiana State Police were assisted by the Mt. Vernon Police Department and the Posey County Sheriff’s Department.
