FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne police are looking for two men seen running from a home on Oliver Street after a reported shooting early Thursday morning.

FWPD Spokesman Officer Chris Felton said police were called to 3027 Oliver Street at 12:10 a.m. Felton said officers arrived to find a man inside the home who appeared to have been shot.

Paramedics pronounced the victim dead. The coroner’s office said later that 24-year-old Quintin B. Armour died of gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.

Crime scene tape surrounds a home in the 3000 block of Oliver Street following a reported shooting on Sept. 7, 2017.

Felton said witnesses reported two men running from the area shortly afterwards. A woman inside the home at the time of the shooting spoke with investigators about what happened. She called 911 after the shooting happened, as did several neighbors who heard gunshots, according to Felton.

It’s unclear where Armour was shot exactly. Police found some evidence outside the home on a walkway, but have yet to determine if he’d been shot outside or inside the home.

Detectives spoke with neighbors and other potential witnesses about what might have happened.

Police are still working to gather possible suspect information.

Inside the home, investigators could be seen focusing on a front room just inside the doorway. A window on a front door appeared to have been shattered.

Crime scene tape surrounded the home and police closed down the street in front to protect any possible evidence.

The incident is under investigation.
