FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Police are looking for persons of interest after two people were injured in a shooting on Fort Wayne’s southeast side Thursday night.

According to dispatch, at approximately 7:48 p.m., officers responded to the intersection of McKinnie Avenue and South Monroe Street on reports of a shooting. They received calls from people reporting hearing shots fired as well as calls from at least one person who said they had been shot. An adult male and an adult female were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

In their search for persons of interest, officers went to a house in the 3600 block of Hanna Street. With the help of SWAT, they shut down Hanna between Oxford St. and Rudisill Blvd. and were operating under the assumption that there was someone in the house who would not come out. After more than three hours at that location, SWAT went into the house but found it empty.
