Upon arrival, officers found a man inside a residence who had sustained apparent gunshot wounds. That person's identity was not released, and he was transported by ambulance to a local hospital after being judged to be in critical condition.
Preliminary investigation indicates that an unknown person knocked on the door of the Bowser Avenue residence and asked for a person who was inside. The person who was shot then came to the door and the unknown person opened fire, striking the man. The release said there could have been more than one shooter at the location and that a gold-colored SUV was seen leaving the area immediately after the shooting.
No other suspect information was released, nor was a motive given.
This is the third shooting within the last two days where the victim has either been killed outright or initially ruled to be in critical condition.
Demarcus Adams, 23, was shot and killed Thursday evening near the intersection of Abbott Street and McKee Street, while another man whose identity has not been released was shot around 3:28 a.m. Friday morning in the 3400 block of Reed Street. That person was originally ruled in critical condition before later dying at a local hospital.
All three shootings remain under investigation by the police department and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. Anyone with information can contact the police at 427-1222.
