A shooting on Fort Wayne’s south side left one person seriously hurt Thursday afternoon.

Police and medics were called just after 4 p.m. to the 6400 block of Roxanne Drive, in the Stephanie Villas complex near South Anthony Boulevard, on an “unknown problem.” Dispatchers would only say there was a shooting reported and that a victim was reported in serious condition.

Police at the scene told NewsChannel 15 that a man was shot in the arm inside a home.

Police have not said what led to the shooting, but a relative who was inside the home at the time of the shooting told NewsChannel 15 that the victim is his cousin.

He said he knew his cousin had company, and said he was sleeping in another room when he heard his cousin screaming. He said he then got up, went to his cousin and found him bleeding heavily.

No suspect information was offered by police. Police said there was no threat to the surrounding area, however.

Investigators were waiting on a search warrant before going inside the home.
