Man arrested for attempted murder

It’s uncertain what charges a man could face after he fired shots inside his Fort Wayne home early Wednesday morning minutes after he called 911.

The incident took place just after 5:30 a.m. at a home in the 400-block of Elizabeth Street.  

According to the Fort Wayne Police Department, the man, who has not been identified, called 911 to say he needed the fire department and police.  When officer arrived they found the man outside armed with a revolver.

He then went back into the house and fired the gun a couple of times.  Police say he did not aim the gun at any officer.

Then at around 5:50 a.m. the man stepped outside, unarmed and surrendered to police.
