NEWS RELEASE

Police were called to the 2300 block of Sunburst Blvd around 12:30 Monday morning for a reported shooting.

According to Evansville Police, officers arrived and found the injured man, 18 year old KESHON HENSLEY. Hensley reportedly told investigators he was shot in the leg by an unknown person while he was walking in the parking lot.
During the investigation, police determined the injury could not have happened the way Hensley described it. When asked about the inconsistency between his story and his injury, Hensley refused to answer anymore questions. The investigation remains on-going.

On January 31st 2016, Hensley was arrested for possession of a handgun without a permit at the same apartment complex and was barred from the property following that arrest. He was trespassing at the time he was injured this morning. After he was treated a local hospital this morning, he was arrested fro trespass.
