Fatal shooting on Oliver Street possibly Allen County's 44th homicide of 2013

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 7:07 am

One man is dead after a shooting Tuesday afternoon on Oliver Street -- and, pending a ruling from the Allen County Coroner's Office, the death could be Allen County's 44th homicide of the year, tying a dubious record set in 1997.

Officers from the Fort Wayne Police Department were dispatched to the 3800 block of Oliver Street around 3:20 p.m. to investigate reports of shots fired, according to Officer Jeremy Webb, a spokesman for the FWPD.

Upon arrival, officers found one person, a male, inside a home who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds, Webb said. That man was transported to a local hospital in critical condition, where he was later pronounced dead.

Multiple investigators and officers appeared to be focused on a gray house, with investigators exiting and entering the home.

Webb said witnesses reported that two men reportedly left the home after the shooting, leaving in a minivan. Only a general description of those men were given, and they were not necessarily identified as suspects.
