FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A woman was killed in a shooting in a northeast-side neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.

Police and medics were called around 5:10 p.m. to the 1900 block of Clarmarnic Drive, in the Kingston Park neighborhood near the intersection of North Coliseum and East State boulevards.

At the scene, officers found a woman in the driveway of a home at 1921 Clarmarnic Drive suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
