An autopsy by the Allen County Coroner’s Office has determined that a man found dead Sunday evening had been shot multiple times. The death of Ashton Shawn Bright, 25, has been ruled a homicide. Fort Wayne police are investigating how a person was shot Sunday night.
Police found Bright’s body after they received reports of gunshots and began searching an area on the city’s southeast side. Then at around 10:20 p.m., police were notified of a shooting victim at 2827 Fruehauf Drive.
Paramedics responded to the home at that location where they pronounced Bright dead at the scene.
Investigators talked to several possible witnesses who heard gunshots. At least one person said they saw someone running from the area, but a suspect description was not immediately available.
