Community Works to End Violence in the City

The suspect in a Saturday morning double shooting in Evansville told Evansville Police that the lethal violence happened because of a dispute over money.

Sidigga L Allen of Evansville, Indiana, is being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail with no bond on the charge of Murder after two Evansville women were fatally shot on Saturday.

According to EPD, Allen admitted to shooting the two women, who were her close family members.

Allen reportedly told investigators she was angry with the victims, 53-year-old Bobbie Rice and 23-year-old Whitney Allen, believing that they had been stealing checks from her.

As those two victims join nine others lost to violence in the River City this year,  many in the community are tired of the killings and want to see change.

Mariama Wilson, President of MASK (Mothers Against Senseless Killings) Evansville, along with Boss Inc., will be holding a “stop the violence: march for change walk next Saturday.

The march for change will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 4 at Bayard Park in Evansville.
