Indiana State Police making an arrest in connection to a shooting in Shoals. 

ISP says the Martin County Sheriff's Office responded to a call of shots fire at a home in the 800 Block of Main Street Sunday afternoon. 

When officers arrived, they found a man, identified as 39-year-old Jeremi Jones, with a gunshot wound. 

Jones was pronounced dead at the scene.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
