Police found a man now charged with that shooting “almost immediately,” said Officer Michael Joyner, spokesman for the police department.
Police have spent longer trying to figure out what led to the shooting that landed William E. Martin, 38, in the Allen County Lock-up, preliminary charged with aggravated battery.
Joyner said investigators think there was a feud developed between Martin and Conwell, a feud that involved an episode of vandalism and a woman or girl.
Three Rivers Ambulance Authority paramedics took Conwell to a local hospital in critical condition, where a doctor declared him dead.
The Fort Wayne Fire Department assisted at the scene. Police, the coroner's office and the Allen County Prosecutor's Office continue their investigation of the death.
