Man shot at Fort Wayne hotel; 2nd victim shows up at hospital


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A shooting at a north Fort Wayne hotel has left a victim gravely hurt.

Police and medics were called just before 3 p.m. to the Comfort Inn at 1005 W. Washington Center Road on a report of a shooting.

According to police spokesman Sgt. Jeremy Webb, officers arrived at the hotel to find a man in a second floor room screaming for help. He appeared to have been shot twice.

The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Webb said investigators have a limited description of a suspect: a male black in his 20s or 30s, 5-foot-10 or 5-foot-11.

Webb said a person who matched that description arrived at a local hospital with gunshot wounds. He was listed in non-life-threatening condition, he said.

It’s unknown at this time if that person is tied to the hotel shooting, though, Webb warned.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is asked to call The Fort Wayne Police Department at 260-427-1222, Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867 or use the anonymous P3 Tips App.
