EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Police say a botched drug deal near the Angel Mounds state historic site in Evansville culminated with the arrest of two people and the shooting of a third.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office says in a Saturday news release that a man was shot in the arm and chest in a parking lot near the archaeological site.

Twenty-year-old Michael Lynn Alexander Jr. of Princeton and Kendra Corrallen Pritchett were arrested after an Interstate 69 traffic stop by state troopers in connection with the shooting.

Police allege Pritchett, the driver, fled after stopping, leading to a chase involving Evansville police that resulted in a head-on collision with another vehicle.

It was immediately unclear if they have attorneys.

The man who was shot was hospitalized with what police called life-threatening injuries.
