The Fort Wayne Police Department is continuing to investigate after a woman was shot and wounded early Thursday at a house in the 4500 block of Smith Street.

Police received a report about 12:40 a.m. of a shooting at that residence. When officers arrived, they found a woman lying on a hallway floor with a gunshot wound to her left thigh, police reported.

A witness found lying on the floor next to her told police "they shot up the house" and that the wounded woman had been in the front room of the home when they heard the gunfire, the police report said.

She was taken to the hospital in good condition, police reported.

Police then spoke to two witnesses, who said they didn't see anything, but heard gunshots, police reported. Police found four bullets in the home. Other officers found 17 spent, 9-millimeter shell casings in the alley that intersects with Smith Street on the north side of the house.
