Identity released of Saturday VFW shooting victim

Monday, October 1, 2012 - 2:31 pm

The identity has been released of a person shot Saturday morning at a VFW post.

The Fort Wayne Police Department issued a news release Monday that said Adonis Robinson, 23, of Fort Wayne remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

At 1:52 a.m., police responded to the VFW in the 2400 block of Winter Street to investigate reports of a large fight inside the business, said FWPD spokesman John Chambers in a news release. Someone there reportedly called 911and said he or she heard a possible gunshot during a fight.

Officers found several people outside the business but did not find a shooting victim. A short time later, police received a call that said a male subject had arrived at a hospital suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, Chambers said in the release.

This incident remains under investigation by the FWPD and the Allen County Prosecutor's Office.
