FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – The Fort Wayne Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred in downtown Fort Wayne early Tuesday morning that left a man in critical condition.
Two men were in a car in the Taco Bell parking lot on West Jefferson Boulevard when a man approached them. As the man approached the car, police said he was shot dead.
That man then walked to the intersection of Fairfield Avenue and West Jefferson Boulevard, where he collapsed, police said. Paramedics took him to a hospital, where his condition was classified as life-threatening.
The two people in the car are cooperating and are being questioned by police, according to the Fort Wayne Police Department’s public information officer, Sgt. Jeremy Webb. It is too early to say if the three know each other and if the men in the car felt threatened in any way, Sgt. Webb said.
Sergeant Webb also said he did not believe this shooting was related to other recent shootings.
