ID's of shooting victims released

The Fort Wayne Police Department has released the names of two people found shot Monday afternoon at Boltz and Warsaw streets.

Keneisha A. Eley, 24, of Fort Wayne, remains hospitalized in serious condition, according to FWPD spokeswoman Raquel Foster. Tyrion L. McNair, 19, also of Fort Wayne, remains hospitalized in fair condition.

Both victims were shot at around 3:26 p.m. Monday. Police found Eley with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to an earlier police news release. McNair initially appeared to have at least two bullet wounds, according to the release.

Although detectives have been told about a possible suspect vehicle seen leaving the area, no suspect information will be released at this time, according to Foster.

The shootings remain under investigation by the FWPD and the Allen County prosecutor's office.
