One person has died in a Sunday night shooting in western Vigo County along U.S. 150 near Pennington Road.

David Robinson, 55, of West Terre Haute, died at the scene, and another person remains hospitalized in Indianapolis.

Sheriff John Plasse said deputies who responded to the scene on the banks of Coal Creek about 9:30 p.m. found Robinson lying on the ground with a gunshot wound. Despite CPR and using an AED, Robinson died.

Another man was also shot. He was taken to Union Hospital in Terre Haute, Plasse said. The man was then airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
